It looks like you can go ahead and add Kate Winslet’s name to the long list of actors who really want to work with beady-eyed elderly creeper Woody Allen.
Sources tell Variety that Kate is currently in final negotiations for Woody’s next movie, which will begin filming this fall. Other than that, there’s really not much known about Woody’s upcoming movie besides the usual: Woody will be writing, directing, and producing it, and the press tour will most likely involve Kate awkwardly tugging at her collar while trying to dodge questions about his personal life. Although Woody did let it slip during an interview with Vox at Cannes that he wants to shoot his next movie in an amusement park, Coney Island being his first choice. Woody Allen? An amusement park? Chris Hansen’s ears just perked up.
Kate has never worked with Woody before. But this isn’t the first time she’s worked with a ~problematic~ director. Back in 2011, she made Carnage with Woody’s fellow pedo creeper filmmaker club member Roman Polanski. So I’m guessing Kate already has her answer written out for when people inevitably ask her if she had any hesitation about working with Woody Allen’s allegedly gross ass.
On the upside, there’s a very good chance working with Woody will mean an 8th Oscar nomination for Kate, since I’m pretty sure that’s written in the Academy rules. But the ultimate downside is that she can probably forget about touching Susan Sarandon’s gorgeous boobies ever again. And even if she does, there a 100% chance it’s gonna be awkward.
