After the bank rolling success of MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, Woody Allen’s next venture portraying a romantic interlude in Rome is all set to hit theatres on June 22 this year.
TO ROME WITH LOVE, that had originally been titled as NERO FIDDLED, is story about a number of people in Italy — some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors — and the romances and adventures and predicaments they get into.
Following the name change a Sony Picture Classics official (the company in charge of the movie rights) remarked that the move was made because NERO FIDDLED, while an appropriate and humorous phrase in the U.S., is not a familiar expression overseas, and many international territories preferred a more globally understood name.
This film will be the critically acclaimed writer-director’s fourth such movie that focuses the lens on a particular city after MATCH POINT, VICKY CHRISTINA BARCELONA and MIDNIGHT IN PARIS.
The cast includes Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page.
MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, which won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay this year, was also a commercial success and this has resulted in great anticipation for his next flick, TO ROME WITH LOVE.
