Woody Allen Jumps On The Slumdog Bandwagon with Pinto

Dev Patel is not the only Slumdog Millionaire star continuing to find good fortune after the film's widespread success. Freida Pinto has recently been asked to join Woody Allen's new project due to start shooting this summer in London. In Pinto's first film since Slumdog, the young actress will have the opportunity to learn from some of the industry's seasoned veterans. As TSR reported earlier this month, Allen has already recruited Josh Brolin and Anthony Hopkins for his yet-to-be-named film. Naomi Watts, who will be fresh off the filming of Mother and Child, will also be joining the cast.

Fans are still in the dark regarding the plot and title of the upcoming film, but that's nothing new for Allen. This new film should not be confused with Allen's current project, Whatever Works, to be released in June.
