Woody and Wild Bunch, again
by Fabien Lemercier
Benefiting from the strong media hype surrounding the opening of the Cannes Film Festival, French international sales outfit Wild Bunch has announced at Cannes that it will continue its fruitful collaboration with Woody Allen.
The team, headed by Vincent Maraval (see interview), which already has a first class line-up at Cannes (see article) –including the director’s most recent British-made film, Cassandra’s Dream [+see also:
film profile] (in post production, see news) – starts pre-sales on the new European production. Currently without a title, the new film will be shot by the US director in Spain this summer (see news).
The cast features Spanish stars Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem and Allen’s current muse, Scarlett Johansson.
Wild Bunch is releasing a fantastic wild card that will guarantee the outfit a series of deals at Cannes, with all territories up for grabs except Spain, Italy and France.
