Let's face it, New York City is going to have many cinematic love letters written to it, and they're not all going to be Woody Allen's Manhattan. The latest is called, simply, New York, I Love You, and amongst the long list of directors are Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. The cast includes bold-face names as well, like Robin Wright Penn, Ethan Hawke, Blake Lively, Hayden Christiansen, Kevin Bacon, Rachel Bilson, James Caan, Orlando Bloom...the list goes on and on. Filming wrapped up in April, and here's a peek at what it's going to look like.


From IMDB: "Following the successful feature film 'Paris, je t'aime'...we are thrilled to present 'New York, I Love You'. 12 filmmakers will direct a short film (5 minutes) illustrating the universal theme of encountering love within the five boroughs of New York City." Some of working titles for the "segments" are: Chinatown, Upper East Side and...Kosher Vegetarian. Basically, if the trailer's any indication, you're looking at some A-list shorts soundtracked by Feist. Word is that Tokyo gets the next "I Love You" treatment. [via Gawker]
