First Look: Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Woody Allen is still going strong and currently finishing his 41st feature film entitled Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The impressive cast includes Javier Bardem, Patricia Clarkson, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Kevin Dunn, Rebecca Hall, and Chris Messina. Set in Barcelona, Spain, the film is romantic comedy about a love triangle. The Weinstein Company just picked up the film for release sometime this year, given Woody is currently in post-production. Check out the very first photos of Johansson, Hall, and Cruz from the film.
Just as New York City was the backdrop in Woody Allen's "Manhattan," the stunning city of Barcelona is the setting for the romantic adventures of Vicky and Cristina. These two young Americans spend a summer in Spain and meet a flamboyant artist (Javier Bardem) and his beautiful but insane ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). Vicky (Rebecca Hall) is straight-laced and about to be married. Cristina (Scarlett Johansson) is a sexually adventurous free spirit. When they all become amorously entangled, the results are both hilarious and harrowing.
Harvey Weinstein stated, "'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' is a funny, sexy and smart film, where once again, Woody is at the top of his game. Through the years, my brother and I have formed an incredible relationship with Woody and Letty and we are so pleased to be working on our sixth film together."
