Woody Allen is adding Joaquin Phoenix to his ever-expanding roster of A-list collaborators, landing the Her star for his next film, EW has confirmed.

In true Allen spirit, no other details about the film have been released, though there are reports that production will begin in July.

Allen’s last film, Blue Jasmine, earned a best actress Oscar for Cate Blanchett. Next up for the tireless director is the romantic comedy Magic In The Moonlight, about an Englishman (Colin Firth) who sets out to expose a phony mystic (Emma Stone) and ends up falling for her.

Phoenix is fresh off of Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s crime novel about a stoner P.I. in 1970s Los Angeles.
