Spanish film and TV stalwart and regular Allen collaborator Mediapro is backing the movie and will co-handle international sales with FilmNation. Letty Aronson’s Gravier Productions also produces.
The movie is due to go into production tomorrow and its cast of Elena Anaya, Sergi Lopez, Gina Gershon and Wally Shawn attended today’s conference in San Sebastian alongside Allen and Mediapro CEO Jaume Roures. Christoph Waltz and Louis Garrel also star.
The romance-comedy tells the story of a married American couple (played by Waltz and Gershon) who go to the San Sebastian Film Festival. There they get caught up in the magic of the festival but she has an affair with a brilliant French movie director and he falls in love with a beautiful local Spanish woman.
