Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix have reportedly been tapped to star in Woody Allen’s next film, an untitled project with few details so far that’s expected to start filming this summer and will follow hisMagic in the Moonlight due out in July

Looks like Woody Allen has found a new muse.Variety reports that Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix have signed onto the famed director’s next project. Few details are known about the untitled film, though Allen is expected to write, produce and direct as usual.

The project will mark the first time Allen will have worked with Phoenix. Stone appears to be emerging as an Allen favorite, having already wrapped her scenes on his upcoming Magic in the Moonlight, due out in July. Allen is known for re-teaming with such leading ladies as Diane Keaton, Dianne Wiest, Penélope Cruzand Scarlett Johansson, who have all made repeat appearances in his films.

Stone is among the actors who were called out by Allen’s adopted daughter with partner Mia Farrow in a New York Times op-ed in February. Dylan Farrow has accused Allen of molesting her as a child, and her harrowing article asks the Hollywood stars how they can ignore the charges: “What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?”

A few of the stars mentioned by Farrow have responded to the letter—with Johansson calling the article “irresponsible” and Keaton saying, “I believe my friend”—but, as of yet, Stone has not publicly commented. The new project is reportedly slated to begin filming this summer.
