Woody Allen is returning to France for his next film and bringing Colin Firth and Emma Stone along as its stars.

Producers Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum announced on Tuesday that Allen is set to start shooting his untitled new comedy later this year.

This is the writer-director's second time filming in France and his eighth film set in Europe.

He will reunite with the cinematographer, production designer and costume designer he worked with on some his previous European productions.

Allen's latest movie, Blue Jasmine, is to be released in July. It stars Australian Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin.
