Adding another ingredient to the global recipe of his latest film, Woody Allen has drafted Aussie Nicole Kidman into the cast.

The Oscar-winning actress joins Spaniard Antonio Banderas, India's Freida Pinto, British-Australian Naomi Watts, American Josh Brolin and Brit Anthony Hopkins in the untitled project.

Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures are producing, with financing from Spain-based Mediapro, which also funded "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." The film is scheduled to begin shooting in London in the summer.

Sony Pictures Classics will release Allen's "Whatever Works" on June 19.

The CAA-repped Kidman most recently starred in Baz Luhrmann's "Australia," which has grossed $206 million worldwide. She next appears in Rob Marshall's musical "Nine" for the Weinstein Co. in November.
