Firth goes to France for Allen?

Colin Firth is in talks to work with Woody Allen

Colin Firth could be adding another acclaimed director to his CV, as he is said to be in talks to star in Woody Allen's next film.

The Oscar-winning King's Speech star is in negotiations to play the male lead in the as-yet-untitled film, reported Deadline.

Emma Stone is already attached to the movie.

Details about the project are under wraps, although reports suggest that it will be shot in the south of France.

Colin - who has already worked with respected film-makers such as Tom Hooper, Tom Ford and Richard Curtis - is also up for a role in Matthew Vaughn's upcoming film The Secret Service.

The 52-year-old, who won an Oscar for his performance as stuttering King George VI in The King's Speech, has three forthcoming big-screen outings including drama Arthur Newman with Emily Blunt, war film The Railway Man opposite Nicole Kidman and Atom Egoyan's drama, Devil's Knot.

If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
