The Weinstein Co. has picked up North American distribution rights to Woody Allen’s romantic comedy/drama Vicky Cristina Barcelona, starring Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson.

Patricia Clarkson, Kevin Dunn, Rebecca Hall and Chris Messina also star in the tale of Vicky and Christina (Hall and Johansson), two Americans vacationing in the title’s Spanish city, who become part of a chain of romances involving an artist (Bardem) and his nutty ex-wife (Cruz).

A steamy menage a trois sequence between Bardem, Cruz and Johansson was the talk of the American Film Market when it previewed in Santa Monica in November.

Another selling point might be the offscreen romance between Bardem and Cruz. The pair also are working together for the Weinstein Co.’s adaptation of the Broadway musical Nine for director Rob Marshall.

The film marks Allen’s sixth partnership with Bob and Harvey Weinstein, one that began in their Miramax days with his 1994 comedy Bullets Over Broadway and continues this month with Cassandra’s Dream. A 2008 release of Barcelona is planned.

    Good to read that getting a US distributor won’t take an eternity

    I don’t think the film title sounds good, I think it sounds more like a working title than a real film title.

    Even though the film has some popular film stars in it, with Woody Allen as the writer and director of that film it will probably be another film flop for him.
