Woody Allen has two stars willing to do "Whatever Works."

Anthony Hopkins ("Fracture") and Josh Brolin ("Milk") are first to be cast in Allen's latest movie, and his return to shooting in New York City. The film follows an older man's romantic life, including his taste for younger women. Make Soon-Yi jokes as necessary.

Earlier reports placed Larry David and "The Wrestler's" Evan Rachel Wood in the cast.

Allen received an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe win for best picture (comedy or musical) with his 2008 film " Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

"Whatever Works" is scheduled to hit theaters this summer.
