Woody Allen heading back home?

Woody Allen wants to make another film in New York.

The director, who has made movies in Paris, Rome, London and Barcelona recently, revealed that it was not just the city but a few home comforts that was enticing him back.

"I would love to make another film in New York. It's a fabulous city to work in, because there are a million things to do here and a million stories to tell," he said.

"There's also the advantage of being in your own home. I like having my own bed, shower, house and more of my surrounding pharmaceuticals."

Woody's latest film Midnight In Paris stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen and Marion Cotillard, and features a cameo from French first lady Carla Bruni.

Owen plays a writer struggling to finish his first novel while on holiday in Paris with his fiance (Rachel) and her stuffy parents.

The Oscar winner, who wrote and directed the movie, said that inspiration took a while to strike.

"I didn't know what I was going to write. I knew I was going to write a film in Paris and I thought of the title, which suggests an enormous amount of romance," he revealed.

"But months went by and I just couldn't think of anything. Then it came to me."
