LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Woody Allen's latest film, Cafe Society, hasn't hit theatres yet, but the filmmaker is already moving on to his next project.

Sources tell Variety that Kate Winslet is in final negotiations to star in Allen's next movie, which will shoot this northern Autumn.

Allen is writing, directing and producing the untitled pic, and like all his recent films, plot details are being heavily guarded.

As usual, Letty Aronson and Edward Walson will produce. The film hasn't found a distributor yet, although Amazon seems to be a likely destination, given Allen's recent relationship with the studio.

Though Winslet's career has spanned more than two decades, the actress has never worked with the auteur prior to this pic.

Winslet is coming off her Oscar-nominated role in Steve Jobs and was also recently seen in Australian hit The Dressmaker. She just wrapped production on New Line's Collateral Beauty opposite Will Smith and recently boarded the drama The Mountain Between Us, co-starring Idris Elba.

Allen's Cafe Society, starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart, bowed at the Cannes Film Festival and opens in American theatres on July 16. The Australian release date is yet to be confirmed by the local distributor, eOne.
