Sony Classics nabs Woody Allen’s ‘Jasmine’

Indie arm acquires all North American rights to pic

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Woody Allen’s next film, “Blue Jasmine,” from Gravier Prods.

It’s the sixth Allen film that Sony Classics has handled, including last year’s “To Rome With Love” and 2011’s “Midnight in Paris,” Allen’s top-grossing film. Sony Classics previously handled Allen’s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger,” “Whatever Works” and “Sweet and Lowdown.”

“Rome” grossed nearly $17 million domestically and another $56 million internationally.

Sony Classics has not set a release date yet for “Blue Jasmine,” which was announced in June without a title.

Producers are Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson. The stars include Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Bobby Cannavale, Louis C.K., Andrew “Dice” Clay, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Story centers on the final stages of an acute crisis and the life of a fashionable New York housewife.
