IN THE NEWS: Woody Allen Casts Emma Stone, 24, and Colin Firth, 52, in New Movie

When it comes to older men in rela­tion­ships with younger women, award-winning film­maker Woody Allen often tops the list. At the age of 77, he’s cur­rently in a rela­tion­ship with 39-year-old Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daugh­ter of his pre­vi­ous girl­friend, Mia Far­row. Allen has taken seri­ous heat for the rela­tion­ship but the pair still seems to be going strong.

Now crit­ics are won­der­ing if he’s ready to por­tray cou­ples like that in his films. The direc­tor has offi­cially cast Emma Stone and Colin Firth as his two leads in his upcom­ing movie—there’s a 28 year age dif­fer­ence between the actors. The com­edy film has yet to be named and no details have been revealed about the plot. That means we have yet to find out if Firth and Stone’s char­ac­ters will be roman­ti­cally linked at all.

Allen has seen sig­nif­i­cant suc­cess in recent years and with two of today’s most sought-after stars, there’s no doubt this film will be a hit, regard­less of how young or old the cast is. A release date has not yet been set.
