Q: Is it true Bette Midler will have a major role in the next Woody Allen film? – K.B.
A: Not exactly. Allen’s about to direct his next secret project in early 1990 and as far as we know the Divine Miss M isn’t part of the
cast. However, both Allen and Midler have been talked about to star in “Scenes from the Mall,” to be directed by Paul Mazursky next summer for Disney.
Essentially a two-character comedy, which all takes place in a mall, of course, it’s about a couple facing a serious rift in their relationship.
Midler would play a best-selling writer of “pop” psychology books and Allen, a lawyer.
