OVIEDO – US filmmaker Woody Allen began shooting scenes on Monday in the northern city of Oviedo following weeks of filming his next – and still untitled - movie in Barcelona.

Dozens of onlookers, photographers and journalists watched as Allen and his crew filmed Spanish actor Javier Bardem and British actress Rebecca Hall walk out of the city’s elegant Hotel de La Reconquista.

Later, American actress Scarlett Johansson, who is also starring in the film, was in a scene at the hotel. Another star appearing in the movie, Spaniard Penelope Cruz, has yet to be seen in the city.

Allen arrived on Sunday in Oviedo from Barcelona where filming on the unnamed project began 9 July.

Budgeted at 20 million euros, the movie is to be “a love letter” to Barcelona, according to Allen who has filmed his last two projects in London. They also starred Ms Johansson.
