Roberto Benigni To Act In Woody Allen Film!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 5th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Woody Allen is starting his next project called “The Wrong Picture” and is he will be filming this movie in Italy.  So far he has gotten a pretty stellar cast and word is that he has landed director/actor Roberto Benigni to be in his latest opus as well.

So far Allen has cast Jesse Eisenberg, Ellen Page, Penelope Cruz, and Alec Baldwin to star in “The Wrong Picture” and hopefully all will “align” and Roberto Benigni will come back to the silver screen.  We all remember Benigni from the Oscars that one year where he won for his film “Life Is Beautiful” and he crawled over seats and people to get to the stage.  Literally.  Since then, none of his films have done well.  He did his version of Pinocchio. but that didn’t bode well for anyone involved or watching.  So I’m glad that Allen has cast an Italian to be in a film located in Italy.  And let’s face it, a Woody Allen film, that cast, and Roberto Benigni….it will be GOLD.

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Valerie Owens:
What would you have said to her?
Susanna Kaysen:
I don't know. That I was sorry. That I will never know what it was like to be her. But I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. You hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside.
Valerie Owens:
Susanna, it's all well and good to tell me all this; but you gotta tell some of this to your doctors.
Susanna Kaysen:
How the hell am I supposed to recover when I don't even understand my disease?
Valerie Owens:
But you do understand it. You spoke very clearly about it a second ago. But I think what you've gotta do is put it down. Put it away. Put it in your notebook, but get it out of yourself. Away so you can't curl up with it anymore.
Susanna Kaysen:
Lisa thinks it's a gift. That it lets you see the truth.
Valerie Owens:
Lisa's been here for 8 years.
Susanna Kaysen:
[crying] I'm so sorry. I was a bitch. I was a bitch.
Valerie Owens:
Don't drop anchor here, you understand?
Susanna Kaysen:
[narrating] When you don't want to feel, death can seem like a dream. But seeing death, really seeing it, makes dreaming about it fucking ridiculous. Maybe, there's a moment growing up when something peels back... Maybe, maybe, we look for secrets because we can't believe our minds...
[overlapping words]
Susanna Kaysen:
All I know is that I began to feel things again. Whatever I was, I knew there was only one way back to the world and that was to use the place to talk. So I saw the great and wonderful Dr. Wick three times a week and I let her hear every thought in my head.
