Following the collaboration on Allen’s most recent film To Rome With Love, Alison Thompson and her team will commence pre-sales in Toronto on the upcoming comedy.
Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, Louis C.K., Bobby Cannavale, Andrew Dice Clay, Michael Emerson, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella and Alden Ehrenreich star and principal photography is scheduled to begin in San Francisco and New York this month.
The project is a Gravier Production and Letty Aronson is producing alongside Stephen Tenenbaum.
FFI’s Toronto slate includes Andrew Adamson’s drama Mr. Pip starring Hugh Laurie, Roger Michell’s historical drama Hyde Park On Hudson with Bill Murray and Laura Linney and the fantasy adventure Cloud Atlas from Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer, and Andy Wachowski.
“Woody Allen is one of the most lauded filmmakers of our time with the ability to attract high calibre talent and keep audiences around the world engaged,” Thompson said. “We are delighted to continue our relationship following To Rome With Love.”
