Allen's comedy "Works" for Sony Pictures Classics

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sony Pictures Classics is reteaming with Woody Allen, buying U.S. rights to the director’s latest comedy, “Whatever Works.”

Ed Begley Jr., Patricia Clarkson, Larry David and Evan Rachel Wood star in the picture, which involves a relationship between an older man and younger woman and the entanglements the man has with the woman’s parents.

The New York-set movie marks a return for Allen to his home turf after a group of pictures shot across the Atlantic, including Oscar nominee “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”

SPC, the specialty division of the Sony Pictures studio, plans a summer release for the new film. The deal marks a reunion for the distributor and Allen, who teamed 10 years ago for the music-themed Oscar nominee “Sweet & Lowdown.”
