Woody Allen’s Latest Film Gets A New Title

After the most successful film in his career, Midnight in Paris, director Woody Allen doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. He has another film coming out this year, and it also marks his first acting gig since 2006’s Scoop.

Originally titled The Bop Decameron, Allen’s newest project was renamed Nero Fiddled. In a press release from Sony Pictures Classics, the studio announced that the film’s title is changing once again. The film is now called To Rome With Love.

Here is what the studio had to say about the name change:

To Rome With Love was a name selected as an homage to the eternal city of Rome where the film was shot on location last summer. This will be used for its worldwide release. The film’s former title, Nero Fiddled, while an appropriate and humorous phrase in the U.S., is not a familiar expression overseas and many international territories preferred a more globally understood name.”

To Rome With Love stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig, and Ellen Page. The film follows these characters as they experience love in Rome. It is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2012.
