RIO DE JANEIRO Rio de Janeiro, city, Brazil
Rio de Janeiro (rē`ō də zhänā`rō, Port. rē` thĭ zhənĕē`r
: A film studio and Rio de Janeiro city and state authorities have offered 17 million dollars to US film director Woody Allen to work his celluloid magic in the fabled Marvelous City, media reports said Tuesday.

The offer was made last week when Allen s sister and film producer Letty Aronson was given a guided tour of Rio by advertising executive Claudio Loureiro, as quoted by the Folha daily.

Loureiro told the newspaper that Allen was offered 15 million dollars to film in the city by Brazilian film studios Conspiracao and 1.7 million dollars by the authorities of both Rio de Janeiro city and state. Shooting would begin in 2012, Loureiro said, since Allen is booked up until 2011.

Major film productions in Rio have been scarce, with many businesses shunning the city in recent years due to its high crime rate.

Allen has already worked on films outside his beloved New York New York, state, United States
