LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Woody Allen has been throwing some international flavor into his latest casting gumbo.

The writer-director has just hired Antonio Banderas for his untitled project. The Spaniard joins Indian "Slumdog Millionaire" starlet Freida Pinto, British-Australian Naomi Watts, American Josh Brolin and Welshman Anthony Hopkins.

Shooting is scheduled to start in London this summer. As usual with Allen's films, the plot is a secret.

Banderas recently starred in "The Other Man" and "Take the Lead." He will appear in the DreamWorks Animation sequel "Shrek Goes Fourth" in May 2010.
