Woody Allenâ€™s upcoming untitled fall project, the follow-up to his upcoming â€œMighty Aphrodite,â€ will be his first foray into the musicalÂ genre. Sources said the project will be a collaboration with Dick Hyman, a conductor, arranger, composer and performer. The musical will star Tim Roth, Julia Roberts, Judy Davis, Alan Alda, Ed Norton, Bette Midler, Drew Barrymore and Billy Crudup.
Songs and music scores have figured importantly in Allenâ€™s works, most notably in “Radio Daysâ€ and â€œManhattan.â€ Hyman has worked on a number of Allenâ€™s films, including â€œBroadway Danny Rose;â€ â€œZeligâ€ and â€œStardust Memories.â€
Allen, a clarinetist, has been performing regularly at New Yorkâ€™s Michaelâ€™s Pub. His “Mighty Aphroditeâ€ is expected to be released to theaters in late October.
