- NERO-FIDDLED NOW TO ROME WITH THE LOVE
|Woody Allen & Penelope Cruz on set of To Rome With Love|
No doubt hoping to capitalize on the success of last year’s Midnight in Paris, Sony Pictures Classics has announced a title change for Woody Allen’s next film. Previously titled Nero Fiddled, the pic will now be called To Rome With Love.
The studio gives its reasoning for the title change as follows:
“The film’s former title, 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.”
The film takes place in Rome, and it is comprised of four separate vignettes, two featuring American characters and two featuring Italian characters. Woody Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Alison Pill, and Alessandra Mastronardi star.
Woody Allen Wrote, Directed and will star in this film.
To Rome With Love opens on June 22nd. Check out these awesome images as well as check out the Full press release below.
