NEW YORK (March 19, 2012) — On the heels of releasing the award-winning and commercial hit, Midnight in Paris, Sony Pictures Classics announced that on June 22 it will release Woody Allen’s latest film, the newly titled TO ROME WITH LOVE.
TO ROME WITH LOVE was a name selected as an homage to the eternal city of Romewhere the film was shot on location last summer. This will be used for its worldwide release. The film’s former title, 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.
Written and directed by Woody Allen, TO ROME WITH LOVE is a 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. The film stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. TO ROME WITH LOVE is a Gravier Productions film produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum, and financed by the Italian production and distribution company, Medusa Film.
Five new images have gone online today, which give us a first look at Ellen holding hands with Jesse Eisenberg.
