A rumour has been spread by Greek media, namely that Brad Pitt is an American writer who is writing a novel about the crisis in Greece. He is living in Plaka, on the hill below the Acropolis and Penelope Cruz is his Greek love. This is the story in Woody Allen’s latest film "Athens by Night," whose screenplay was written by Paul Oster. Reportedly, 11 people from the great director’s team are already in Athens, looking for suitable premises for shooting the film, which they are supposed to begin in May and complete in September.
    However, Woody Allen’s official website does not mention anything about this film. Hollywood media are silent too. The great American director has launched a successful series of films the action of which takes place in major European cities. It started successfully with London’s "Match Point", followed by "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris," which have won awards, including an Oscar. "To Rome with Love", however, was a failure. Critics declared it as trash, hastily written in Roman backstreets. Logically, Allen could be seeking revenge in the next European capital. So, why shouldn’t it be Athens?

    And while we are still looking for a confirmation of "Athens by Night", the next film by the genius from New York is already in theatres. It is about Blue Jasmine, who tells the story of a woman from New York, who has moved to San Francisco. Among the cast are Cate Blanchett, Alec Baldwin and Peter Sasgard, replacing Bradley Cooper.
