'Secret' premiere for Allen film

US director Woody Allen has held a secret premiere of his new film Cassandra's Dream in Spain.

Allen was in the northern city of Aviles to introduce the film to 600 invited guests, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais.

The film, starring Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell, will be officially unveiled at the Venice Film Festival.

Allen said: "I hope you like the film, but if you don't, you can ask for your money back," reported the paper.


The director moved on to the nearby city of Oviedo with a film crew to scout for locations for his new film starring Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz.

Work on the picture is due to start later this year in Barcelona.

Allen first visited Oviedo back in 2002, when he was awarded Spain's prestigious Prince of Asturias arts prize.

He said he was charmed by the city's Romanesque and medieval architecture.

The city has since erected a bronze statue of the Oscar-winning director.
