Allen Has Doubts Over Bruni Role

French First Lady CARLA BRUNI's starring role in a WOODY ALLEN movie is under threat - the legendary director is having second thoughts about casting her.
Former model Bruni accepted Allen's offer of a part in a future project last year (09) after the Annie Hall filmmaker confirmed he wanted to put her in front of the camera, adding: "I'm sure she would be wonderful... I would cast her in many different ways."
Bruni, married to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, later excitedly confirmed she had accepted the offer: "I don't know what the role is but I said yes... I can't miss an opportunity like this one. When I'm a grandmother I'd like to be able to say I made a film with Woody Allen."
But Bruni could be set for disappointment after all - Allen has doubts about his offer, and is adamant their possible partnership is "far from certain".
He says, "Carla Bruni is not a woman who earns her living as an actress. She is a First Lady. She could be taken away at any moment by other duties, like a political crisis or an important event. I have to take account of the risks that there could be, and hiring her is far from certain."
