Woody Allen’s new film, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” has been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics for North American distribution.
The film, which stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts, chronicles one family's complicated love lives. The company plans a fall release.
“I love working with [Sony Pictures Classics co-Presidents] Michael Barker and Tom Bernard and I know my films are in good hands with them,” Allen said, in a statement. Sony Pictures Classics also released Allen’s recent film, “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.
