Woody Allen to star in Gigolo film

Woody Allen is reportedly set to star in a new movie about gigolos.

The filmmaker - who scooped an Oscar for Midnight In Paris last month - has signed up for John Turturro's indie comedy Fading Gigolo, which will mark the first time in more than a decade that he has acted in a film he didn't direct.

Variety reports that Allen will be joining Sharon Stone in the movie, which Turturro is writing, directing and starring in. Modern Family beauty Sofia Vergara is also in the frame for a role.

The film will see Allen and Turturro play best friends who decide to get into the gigolo field to make some money, while Stone and Vergara will play women who use their business.

Things start to get complicated when members of the Hasidic Jewish community the friends live in start to become suspicious about their activities.

Allen, 76, hasn't acted in a film that he didn't direct since 2000's Picking Up The Pieces.
