Woody Allen re-titles pic ‘To Rome With Love’

Sony Classics feature formerly known as 'Nero Fiddled'

After toying with “Bop Decameron” and “Nero Fiddled,” writer-director Woody Allen has finally settled on a title for his next movie, as Sony Pictures Classics has set a June 22 release date for “To Rome With Love.”

Title was selected as an homage to the city of Rome, where the film was shot on location last summer.

Title “Nero Fiddled” was discarded because overseas auds aren’t familiar with the expression. “To Rome With Love” will be used for the film’s worldwide release.

Story follows a number of people in Italy — some American, some Italian, some residents, some visitors — and their romances, adventures and predicaments. Pic stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page.

A Gravier Prods. film, “To Rome With Love” was produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum and financed by the Italian production and distribution company Medusa Film.

Sony Pictures Classics handled U.S. distribution for Allen’s last picture, “Midnight in Paris,” which has grossed nearly $150 million worldwide.
