Weinstein Co. Picks Up Woody Allen's Cristina

The Weinstein Company will continue their love affair with Woody Allen and distribute his next movie, the romantic comedy/drama Vicky Cristina Barcelona, slated for release this fall. The company has released six of his films, including Cassandra’s Dream, which is currently in theaters. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Vicky and Christina (Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johansson), two Americans vacationing in the title’s Spanish city, become part of a chain of romances involving an artist (Javier Bardem) and his nutty ex-wife (Penelope Cruz). A “steamy menage a trois sequence” between Mr. Bardem (yum!), Ms. Cruz and Ms. Johansson was the buzz abount town when the film previewed at the American Film Market in Santa Monica in November. Woody, some advice: Don’t leave that scene on the cutting room floor!
