A new title has been applied to Woody Allen-directed latest film project set in Barcelona, Spain. The Hollywood Reporter has brought in news saying the flick is now called "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."
Set for a release in Spain by fall 2008, the romantic drama comedy previously was referred as "Midnight in Barcelona", said before by Allen who did stress that the title was tentative. Not only directs, the famed filmmaker also took duties in writing the screenplay as he consistently did on his past movies.
Pic is co-production between Gravier and Barcelona-based Mediapro with collaboration by Spanish broadcaster Antena 3, featuring some Hollywood's household names like Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, and Javier Bardem in the cast lineup. Filming began on July 9, 2007 in Barcelona at most though there were also shots taken in New York City and Oviedo, Asturias, Spain.
