Weinstein's Partner With Woody Allen

The Weinstein Co. has picked up the distribution rights to Woody Allen's latest film, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. The film stars Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson.

The movie is about 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).

This isn't the first time the Weinstein's have partnered with Woody Allen. It's actually the sixth project they have worked on.

If y'all remember this was the movie Scarlett was shooting in Spain last year. I remember seeing pics of Johansson and Allen together on set. It got me excited because I have loved all the projects the two have worked on together.
