Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts Join Woody Allen's 'Whatever Works'

Freida Pinto will go from the slums of Mumbai to the heart of New York City.

The "Slumdog Millionaire" star and Naomi Watts have agreed to co-star in Woody Allen's "Whatever Works," according to Variety. The story follows an older man's love life and his attraction to a younger woman, to be played by Pinto. The movie also marks Woody Allen's return to filming in his beloved Manhattan.

Anthony Hopkins ("Fracture") and Josh Brolin ("Milk") signed on to the film earlier this month.

"Whatever Works" is scheduled to hit theaters in June 2010.

Watts, 40, co-starred in this year's "The International."
