Woody Allen’s Roman Comedy Nero Fiddled Will Come Out Next Summer


Woody Allen’s next comedy is called Nero Fiddled, and it takes place in Rome. The four vignettes comprising the film will star Woody Allen himself, IN THE FLESH, plus Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, and Ellen Page (and Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, and Greta Gerwig). Okay, I realize this probably won’t happen, but if Alec Baldwin played Nero, that would be incredible. Anyway, Sony Pictures Classic says there are “more laughs in this one than you can imagine” and calls it “the perfect summer comedy of 2012.” Yeah, that’s what you’d like us to think, ISN’T IT, SONY?
