Woody Allen will be shooting his next film in the U.S., mostly in San Francisco, but also in New York, he revealed in Rome at the world premiere of his latest picture, “To Rome With Love.”
Press screening for “To Rome with Love,” which unspooled in a fully dubbed-into-Italian version, which non-Italian journalists were barred access from on strict orders from Allen’s publicist.
“To Rome with Love,” which was shot in Italian, consists of four non-intersecting vignettes, two of which are in Italian, one of these stars Roberto Benigni, while the other two are in English.
“I don’t like dubbing at all,” said Allen. “Americans aren’t used to dubbing; we grew up without dubbing. It’s always very, very strange to us.”
A version of “To Rome” with subtitles in English of the film’s extensive Italian dialogue, will have its North American premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14, prior to the picture’s U.S. release via Sony Pictures Classics on June 22.
Italy’s Medusa, which fully financed the film, is releasing “To Rome” in Italy on April 20 on a massive 600 prints, Medusa head Giampaolo Letta announced.
“To Rome: marks first appearance of Allen, who plays a retired opera director, since “Scoop,” back in 2006.
Also in Rome were Alec Baldwin, who in the film plays a famous American architect who intersects with a young man played by Jesse Eisenberg, also in attendance; Penelope Cruz, who plays a call girl; and Benigni, who plays an Italian guy mistaken by paparazzi for a movie star.
