The list of A-list celebs who haven't appeared in a Woody Allen film just keeps getting shorter. The cast for Allen's next project, which is as yet untitled, includes Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart in its list of top-billed stars, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actresses will be joined by co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis. Though Allen's latest release, Irrational Man, is his second critical flop in a row (after last year's Magic in the Moonlight), there's still definite cache to being a leading lady in an Allen film.

Controversy over allegations of sexual assault from his daughter Dylan Farrow continue to swirl around Allen, and the filmmaker recently made comments about his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, that raised eyebrows. Still, many filmgoers and fans seem to have reached the point where they're able to appreciate Allen's work despite having lost respect for the man himself.

Allen received his most recent Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Midnight in Paris in 2012. His untitled film project is scheduled to be released in 2016. In addition to the film, Allen is also working on a television show for Amazon that is set to begin production in early 2016.
