Watch the Trailer for Woody Allen's 'Midnight In Paris' Follow-Up, 'To Rome With Love'by: Posted:
Last year was a good one for Woody Allen: after a string of less-than-successful films, his comedy "Midnight in Paris" became his highest-grossing movie ever with $148 million domestic. Oh, and he won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, so that was pretty good too.
Now it's time for Allen to follow up on "Midnight in Paris," and he'll do so with "To Rome With Love." The new romantic comedy was formerly titled "Nero Fiddled," so that might give a better idea of the interpersonal drama that could come up in the film than the current title does.
The first trailer for "To Rome With Love" is now out, and it reveals the plotlines we'll be following: we have Jesse Eisenberg and Greta Gerwig as a couple who invites a newly-single friend (Ellen Page) to stay with them; there's Roberto Benigni as a regular joe who is mistaken for a celebrtiy; and there's Penelope Cruz as a prostitute who is also in a comical misunderstanding.
Allen himself also co-stars, as does Alec Baldwin, who plays Eisenberg's older friend. "To Rome With Love" continues Allen's European tour of filmmaking, as "Midnight in Paris" was set in France, "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" in Spain, and "Match Point" in England.
