After setting several of his films in Europe in recent years, US cinematic legend Woody Allen is now reportedly considering making a movie in Munich.

With his new comedy “Midnight in Paris” opening in German cinemas August 18, Allen told weekly news magazine Focus about how he was eyeing the Bavarian city as potential film location.

“I’m thinking very seriously about a project there,” Allen told the magazine.

After a recent bevy of European films, the 75-year-old New Yorker said he was impressed by Bavaria’s capital: “Munich is a wonderful city, very cultivated and sophisticated. The food is good, the beer is good — I’d love to spend a few months there for a film shoot.”

Although Allen is famous for his Big Apple oeuvre, he is currently filming in Rome after using London, Barcelona and Paris as backdrops for his movies.
