TWC nabs rights to ‘Barcelona’

Studio to distribute next Woody Allen film

Despite lackluster returns on “Cassandra’s Dream,” the Weinstein Co. has decided to extend its relationship with Woody Allen by distributing his next pic, “Vicky Christina Barcelona.”

TWC grabbed all North American rights to the film, which stars Javier Bardem, Patricia Clarkson, Penelope Cruz, Rebecca Hall and Scarlett Johansson. A “Manhattan”-esque love letter to Barcelona, it is billed as much lighter in tone and palette than his recent Blighty-set work.

The title characters are Americans played by Johansson and Hall who spend a summer in Spain and become amorously entangled with a couple played by Bardem and Cruz.

A release sometime this year is in store for the pic, which is still in post. It was produced by longtime Allen collaborators Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Gareth Wiley as well as Jaume Roures (“La torre de Suso,” “Salvador”).

“This is now my sixth project with the Weinsteins, and I value the relationship we have created through the years,” Allen said.

While running Miramax, Bob and Harvey Weinstein handled “Everyone Says I Love You,” “Mighty Aphrodite,” “Bullets Over Broadway” and “Celebrity.”

While it remains in 107 U.S. theaters, “Cassandra’s Dream” has cumed just $742,212 since bowing Jan. 18. Its theater count held steady last weekend, but grosses dropped a steep 56%.
