Freida Pinto replaces Scarlett Johansson in Woody Allen movie
Freida Pinto has shot down rumors she is dating her Slumdog Millionaire co-star, Dev Patel.
“No we are not,” Frieda said when a reporter asked the beauty on the Oscar red carpet, where she was joined by some of her “Slumdog” co-stars. “We’re not dating, no.”
“I thought she was going to say something else,” Dev added. “But of course, we’re not.”
Freida has now signed on for her post-Slumdog role, playing the ingenue in Woody Allen’s untitled new project, which shoots in London this spring.
She’s signing on along with Naomi Watts, according to Variety, and they’ll both be joining Anthony Hopkins and Josh Brolin in the film.
As usual with Woody Allen, we have no idea what the movie is about yet. But you have to wonder if Scarlett Johansson is pissed having been replaced by Pinto, the next next big thing to get her start with Allen.
