NEW YORK, May 21 (UPI) -- Woody Allen
is headed back to dreamy European romance after last year's melancholy but well-received Blue Jasmine
, which led to a Best Actress Oscar award for Cate Blanchett
Magic in the Moonlight, which takes place in southern France in the 1920s, stars Colin Firth as a skeptical magician and stage actor who is called to debunk the claims of a young psychic, played by Emma Stone.
The film, which debuts July 25, also stars Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Erica Leerhsen and Jacki Weaver.
