Like other prolific directors over the course of history, Woody Allen has become known not only for his films, but for his choices in leading ladies. In recent years, the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Evan Rachel Wood and Radha Mitchell have been among his cinematic harem of beauties, with Naomi Watts, Freida Pinto and Anna Friel starring in his next film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. As you can see, the man has taste.

It makes sense then, that Allen would attract to more of the world’s most lovely ladies to his next film, a tightly wrapped production that will shoot this summer in Paris. Tightly wrapped, I say, because no one has any idea what it will be about — save for Allen and crew. Yesterday, Deadline reported that Marion Cotillard (Nine) was attached to play the “muse” of a character played by Owen Wilson. And today, word from THR is that Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes) has also joined the cast.
