Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez will bring new blood to Woody Allen’s untitled next film.

Woody Allen has cast Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in his next feature film. As is usually the case with Allen’s projects, the new movie is thus far unnamed.

His latest project will be distributed in cinemas by Amazon’s television and motion picture production arm. This will be the third project Allen directs for Amazon Studios, which produced Cafe Society and the upcoming Wonder Wheel. Amazon also produced Allen’s television directorial debut, Crisis In Six Scenes.

Chalamet is intriguing casting, already starring in Call My By Your Name, which hits cinemas in the US this autumn, and is already generating Academy Awards talk. Fanning starred in Nicolas Wind Refn’s conspiracy of fame hallucination The Neon Demon, and had a key featured part in Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled. She was also featured in Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women, and J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. Former Disney star Gomez broke from her Mousy image when she appeared in Harmony Korine’s 2013 Spring Breakers. She produced the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.

Filming on the new project is expected to start soon. Meanwhile, Wonder Wheel,  starring James Belushi, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet, will have its world premiere in October as the closing night film of the New York Film Festival
