Ed Begley Jr stars in the romantic comedy alongside Patricia Clarkson, Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood.
Sony Pictures Classics, which previously collaborated with Allen on 1999's Sweet And Lowdown, plans a summer release on the film. Maple Pictures has rights in Canada. Although it will be ready in time for Cannes, Wild Bunch says it is not necessarily interested in a Cannes premiere. Mars had French distribution rights.
Three US distributors made offers on the film after seeing a work-in-progress screening after AFM.
'It was great to be back in Manhattan shooting a comedy and especially with such a gifted cast,' Allen said. 'I'm very lucky.'
Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum produced.
