Stone and Phoenix signed onto Woody Allen’s next film, which is expected to begin filming in July. The project is currently untitled, with no plot details available. The film also has no distributor, but Sony Pictures is in the top spot.

With Stone coming off a big weekend at the box office with the recent premiere of her film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, this could be a beneficial deal for Allen and potential distributors for the film.
