Woody Allen’s Nero Fiddled gets summer 2012 release


Last we heard about Woody Allen’s latest film is that he’d changed the title from The Bop Decameron to Nero Fiddled. Recent news surfaced that the film will be released in summer 2012 by Sony Pictures Classics. First Showing notes that this is the fifth time Sony Pictures Classics has distributed an Allen movie, the previous ones being You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Whatever Works, Sweet and Lowdown, and this year’s Midnight in Paris. (Midnight is Allen’s biggest box office hit, taking in more than $143 million worldwide. Nosh on that, Tower Heist!)

Still no plot details as of yet. We only know that it was shot in Rome and is comprised of four unconnected vignettes featuring Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin, Penelope Cruz, Roberto Benigni, Jesse Eisenberg, and Allen himself. For now, Allen’s got a bit of a break before starting his 2012 project, whatever it may be.
