After having the title changed from The Bop Decameron to Nero Fiddled back in October, the next project from Woody Allen is now even closer to a reality as Sony Pictures Classics has just announced that it will distribute Allen's film in North America and The United Kingdom. Following the recent success of Midnight in Paris, which just received four Golden Globe nominations, Sony is eager to get back in the saddle with Allen. This will actually mark their fifth collaboration after You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Whatever Works, Sweet and Lowdown and the aforementioned comedy starring Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams.
Though no plot has yet been revealed, the cast is reason enough to see the flick as it includes Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Alison Pill, and Ellen Page. Sony is excited and is already giving the film praise saying, "More laughs in this one than you can imagine. We know it's a bit premature, but thank you Woody and company, for granting us the perfect summer comedy of 2012. Keep ’em coming." Meanwhile, Allen politely says, "I’ve had a number of very good experiences working with Sony Classics, culminating most recently with Midnight in Paris. They seem to be very sensitive to the kind of films I make, and I'm looking forward to working with them now again.” I'm always looking forward to Woody Allen's next film.
