Sony Pictures Classics Grabs Woody Allen’s ‘Midnight In Paris,’ Eying Morgan Spurlock’s ‘The Greatest Movie Ever Sold’
Posted on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 by Germain Lussier
Woody Allen is known for his love affairs and he seems to be developing one with Sony Pictures Classics. The art-house distributor has acquired the North American rights to Allen’s latest film, Midnight In Paris, which stars Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Michael Sheen, Adrien Brody and Alison Pill among others. SPC has distributed four Allen films total, including the last three in a row: Whatever Works, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger and now Midnight In Paris. They also distributed Sweet and Lowdown in 1999.
Another film that might find itself with a blue SPC card in front of it is Morgan Spurlock‘s documentary The Greatest Story Ever Sold, which is set to premiere at Sundance later this month. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company is “actively pursing” the rights to the film. Read more about both films after the jump. Read More »
