Woody's Latest: 'Whatever Works' With Larry David

whatever works

In a conversation with Duane Dudek of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Woody Allen revealed that he’s christened his latest project in production as Whatever Works, and describes it as “a blackish comedy.” Starring Larry David (a shoo-in for the mandated Woody stand in) and Evan Rachel Wood, the film marks Woody’s return to his old New York stomping grounds after a lengthy filmmaking stint in Europe.

Woody on Larry: “He’s got a great thing of his own. He’s got a great, what would you call it, sarcastic, sour or vitriolic, wonderful, wonderful, no nonsense sense of humor.”

“I think I’m more illusory than him. He’s a stronger personality. I’m more of a schlemiel, a dope. I would be the guy they would plant the microfilm on and I would never know it, and I would be out there wondering why people are shooting at me. Larry has a different quality.”

Whatever Works is slated for a 2009 release. (via Pop Candy)
