Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Woody Allen’s “Magic in the Moonlight,” starring Eileen Atkins, Colin Firth, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney, Emma Stone and Jacki Weaver.

Set in the south of France in the 1920s during the glamorous Jazz Age, the romantic comedy concerns an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle.

Produced by Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson, the film was shot by Darius Khondji with production design by Anne Seibel, both of whom worked on “Midnight in Paris,” Allen’s last French-set production.

With a worldwide gross of more than $150 million, “Midnight in Paris” was by far the helmer’s most successful film at the box office. His latest release, San Francisco-set “Blue Jasmine,” has grossed $75 million worldwide and garnered several awards and nominations for Cate Blanchett (pictured with Allen).
