The Oscar-winning writer-director again teams with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, who distributed several of Allen's films while at Miramax, including Everyone Says I Love You, Mighty Aphrodite, Bullets Over Broadway and Celebrity.
"Harvey is one of the only producers-distributors around who can actually see beyond the grosses and gets real pleasure out of presenting fine movies," Allen said. "I hope my film can live up to some of the terrific pictures he's given the public."
"Woody Allen has once again poured his tremendous passion and talent into creating a very powerful and compelling drama," Harvey Weinstein said. "We are absolutely thrilled to be back in business with one of the greatest filmmakers in American cinematic history."
