Looks like Freida Pinto has found her first role post-Slumdog Millionaire. She’ll be joining the growing ensemble of Woody Allen’s latest feature. Just like Diane Keaton and Scarlett Johansson before her, Pinto is the latest Allen muse as she takes on the ingenue role in the helmer’s still-untitled pic.
Also added to the cast is Naomi Watts. Both actresses will join the already-announced Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins.
Mediapro, the Spain-based company behind Vicky Cristina Barcelona, is financing the as-yet-titled picture, which will be produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures.
Whatever Works, Allen’s next feature that stars Larry David, will be released by Sony Pictures Classics in June.
