    Actor and filmmaker Woody Allen is shooting a scene for his new movie in San Francisco's Mission District this week.

    The San Francisco Film Commission said in the beginning of August that Allen would be filming throughout the Bay Area through the end of the month for the yet-to-be-named film, scheduled to be released next year.

    Actors Cate Blanchett and Peter Sarsgaard, who are in the film, were spotted Friday filming in front of jewelry shop Shreve & Co. near Union Square. Other actors rumored to be in the film are Alec Baldwin and comedian Louis C.K.

    Some filming has been done in Pacific Heights, and other locales for the movie include the Sunset and Marina districts and parts of Marin County.

    The romantic comedy, produced by New York-based company Perdido Productions, is about a wealthy New York City woman who finds herself broke and in San Francisco, living with her sister and downsizing her life, according to the film commission.
