LOS ANGELES (AP) — Woody Allen is returning to France for his next film, and he's bringing Colin Firth and Emma Stone along as its stars.

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

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