Midnight in Paris has just hit theaters, so, naturally, it’s time to announce the cast of the next Woody Allen film, the perplexingly-titled The Bop Decameron, which is presumably a study of bops and decamerons, though details are sketchy. The only description Allen himself has called it a “broad comedy,” so it’s anyone’s guess as to the plot of the film.

While we might not have the foggiest notion of what The Bop Decameron is about, we do know who will be in it. Alec Baldwin had already been cast, and an announcement today indicates that Woody is going back to his stable of regulars, including the likes of himself, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. Co-stars include Antonio Albanese, Fabio Armiliata, Alessandra Mastronardi, Ornella Muti, Flavio Parenti, Alison Pill, Riccardo Scamarcio and Alessandro Tiberi.

The film shoots in Rome next month. How do you say “nebbish” in Italian? Oh. That’s right. Meschino.
