Sony Classics re-teams with Woody and a “Stranger”

BY KEVIN CRUST

Undeterred by the performance of “Whatever Works,” Sony Pictures Classics is taking another chance on Woody Allen by picking up his latest drama, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” for a fall release. Shot and set in London, the film stars Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts. Via Variety.

The Larry David-starring, New York-set “Whatever Works” didn’t, earning Allen some of the worst reviews of his career and grossing only $5 million domestically ($23m worldwide).  Returning to Europe may be a good thing as Allen had previously revitalized his career making four straight films there, including the hits “Match Point” ($85m worldwide) and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” ($96m worldwide). The writer-director’s films regularly earn 75% of their grosses overseas. Anne Thompson reports that Allen will continue the European leg of his career by shooting a new film in Paris this summer with Marion Cotillard and Owen Wilson.

    I really love Freida Pintos performance in slumdog milionair. She is a great and beautifull actress. So now it is just awesome, that she will become the next bond girl.
