After years of shooting films only in New York, Woody Allen has been branching out with productions filmed in Rome, Paris and London. And now he's coming to Newport.

Variety reported that Allen will start shooting in July with stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix in a currently untitled film that is described as a "contemporary story."

Local officials said they haven't been contacted by Allen or producers about the film, but Steven Feinberg, director of the Rhode Island Film and Television Office confirmed that there will be a major motion picture filmed here in the City-by-the-Sea but he declined elaborating, citing a confidentiality agreement.

More information about the movie should be coming out in the next week or two.
