Once known as ‘Bop Decameron’ early on in its production, and up until now ‘Nero Fiddled’, Woody Allen’s 2012 release now has a third title that it’s going by, and unsurprisingly it’s a far more generic title. The Hollywood Reporter has the news on what it’s now going to be called…
Woody Allen’s newest movie has a new title and a release date.
Allen’s follow-up to Midnight in Paris, the filmmaker’s highest-grossing movie, will hit theaters June 22 with the title To Rome With Love, Sony Pictures Classics announced.
The project is Allen’s latest movie to spotlight a European city he becomes taken with – Match Point was set in London while Vicki Cristina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris have their settings in their respective titles – and was previously titled Nero Fiddled.
“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,” said the company in a statement.
According to SPC, Rome “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.”
The cast inlcude Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page.
The movie was produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum and financed by Italian production and distribution company Medusa Film.
