Jesse Eisenberg in new Allen film

Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page have signed up to star in Woody Allen's next project, to be shot in Rome this summer.

The as-yet untitled, unscripted movie will also feature 30 Rock's Alec Baldwin and Penelope Cruz.

Penelope won an Oscar for her role in previous Allen flick Vicky Cristina Barcelona, but the other actors are all new to working with the veteran film-maker.

Allen's latest film Midnight In Paris, with Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams, is set to open the Cannes Film Festival in May. Meanwhile Social Network's Jesse can be heard voicing Blu in animated hit Rio, and Inception actress Ellen is starring in comedy Super.
