Carla Bruni May Star in Woody Allen Film

Carla BruniCarla Bruni - who married French President Nicolas Sarkozy in 2007 - is rumored to have accepted an offer from director . The part would be in an as-yet-untitled movie he is planning to make next year.

Woody stated last year he would offer Carla “any role she liked” in one of his films.

“I would like to work with Carla Bruni. I’m sure she would be wonderful. She has charisma and she performs, so she’s not unknown to an audience, and I would cast her in many different ways,” Allen said. “She is an accomplished artist, she is very beautiful and I am sure she would have a gift for comedy. I can assure people it would cause no problems with President Sarkozy, or with the image of France.”

Carla, 41 - whose sister Valeria and mother Marysa are both experienced actresses - has only ever held a few small film roles in the past, most notably in Robert Altman’s 1994 satire Pret-a-Porter.

Woody’s latest, also untitled, project is currently filming in London and stars Slumdog Millionaire , Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas and Naomi Watts.
