Woody Allen prepping to shoot film in R.I.

For many years, director Woody Allen wouldn’t make a movie anywhere but in Manhattan. Then, suddenly, he shot a series of films overseas. “Match Point” was set in merry old England, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” was shot in Spain, and “Midnight in Paris” took place in the City of Lights. Well, the Oscar-winning director of “Annie Hall” is now headed our way. This week, Boston-based C.P. Casting is holding auditions for actors interested in a role in Allen’s next film, which is due to start shooting in Rhode Island in July. Not much is known about the plot, or who’s in the cast, but the movie is described as a “contemporary story” with academics, graduate students, and middle- and working-class folks. Auditions are by appointment.
