Woody Allen may be drowning in waves of negative press these days surrounding the alleged molestation of Mia Farrow’s daughter, Dylan, but Hollywood stars continue to show their support and excitement to work with the ‘Blue Jasmine’ director.

Deadline reports that ‘Her’ star, Joaquin Phoenix, has been confirmed as the lead in Allen’s next project. Similarly to all other Woody Allen projects, the title and plot details have not been released. The only piece of information may available is that production begins in July.

Allen is currently working on a romantic comedy entitled ‘Magic in the Moonlight’ starring Colin Firth and Emma Stone, following an Englishman who falls for a mystic while setting out to expose her as a fake.

Phoenix received critical acclaim for his performance in Spike Jonze’s ‘Her’ last year and will next be seen in Paul Thomas Anderson’s ‘Inherent Vice’, telling the story of a stoner private investigator in 1970’s Los Angeles.
