Wonder Wheel, the next film by legendary director Woody Allen, has received a December release date.
Wonder Wheel is a drama set in 1950’s Coney Island and stars Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake.
The film will debut right at the heart of awards season on December 1st, and will be distributed by Amazon Studios. Amazon worked previously on last year’s Allen pic, Café Society.
The film’s logline says that the Wonder Wheel will contain, “larger-than-life characters, lovers, infidelity, and gangsters.”
Joining Winslet and Timberlake in the lead cast are Jim Belushi, and Juno Temple. This will be Winslet’s first time working with Allen having been previously lined up to star in 2005’s Match Point.
Amazon will be hoping Wonder Wheel is as well received by critics as Manchester by the Sea which they released last year.
Allen has picked up multiple Oscar wins, including for Hannah and Her Sisters, Annie Hall, and Midnight in Paris.
