Sony Pictures Classics has acquired North American theatrical rights to Woody Allen’s next film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. The movie stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts. While not much is known about the film, the rumor is it revolves around different members of a family and their attempts to solve their individual problems.
Woody Allen gave this statement about working with SPC:
“I love working with Michael Barker and Tom Bernard and I know my films are in good hands with them.”
SPC released Whatever Works last summer and Sweet and Lowdown in 1999.
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is produced by Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures. It is financed by Mediapro, the Spain-based company which also funded Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The film was shot in London in August 2009.
