Woody Allen’s Retitles His Upcoming Film ‘To Rome With Love’

To Rome With Love
Sony Pictures Classics

After playing with two previous titles (‘Nero Fiddled’ and ‘Bop Decameron’), Woody Allen‘s latest is now titled ‘To Rome With Love‘ and has a release date of June 22.

This is his follow up to last year’s Oscar-winning ‘Midnight in Paris,’ which was Allen’s highest grossing film in his over forty years as a filmmaker. The film stars Allen alongside Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Alison Pill, and Alessandra Mastronardi.

As some have noted, this title seems to bring the film in line with ‘Midnight in Paris,’ which is probably helpful as a marketing tool, and it’s worth pointing out that Allen’s film are often untitled until shortly before release, so this late title comes as no surprise. It also recalls such other films as ‘From Russia With Love,’ ‘From Paris With Love’ and ‘To Sir, With Love.’

Judy Davis, Alison Pill and Penelope Cruz have all appeared in Allen’s movies before, everyone else in the cast is a newcomer to the director. What’s interesting about the cast is that this is the return of Roberto Benigni to American screens. Post-’Life is Beautiful’ the Oscar winner made his 2002 version of ‘Pinocchio,’ which was mostly ignored when it was released, and since then the writer/actor/director has kept a low profile.

Allen’s film is being released by Sony Pictures Classics, who’ve been distributing his movies stateside since 2009′s ‘Whatever Works’. The director had long-standing relationships with MGM, Orion Pictures, Miramax, and DreamWorks over the years, and now seems settled at SPC.
