Allen's Latest Picked Up by Sony
Woody Allen continues to stay a busy man (it's kind of amazing that he still churns out a movie per year) as his latest film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, has been bought by Sony Picture Classics for domestic distribution. Although Allen's work has been hit or miss over the past decade or so, I still hope for the best when it comes to his projects. Another Match Point could be right around the corner, after all. As usual, not much is known about this latest effort other than a brief plot description: “[the film] revolves around different members of a family, their tangled love lives and their attempts to try to solve their problems." That seems like well-traveled territory for Allen, but, then again, you really can't discern too much from that vague of a description. The film stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, and Naomi Watts among others - all first-timers for an Allen film, I believe. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger has a planned release in September.
