Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American rights to Woody Allen’s next movie now titled, "Irrational Man." The film features a prestigious cast including Jamie Blackley, Joaquin Phoenix, Parker Posey and Emma Stone.
"Sony Classics and I have a good working relationship. I like the way they handle my movies, very special, very classy and I always hope my films live up to their expectations,” said Woody Allen. Sony Pictures Classics adds, "Woody Allen's new movie IRRATIONAL MAN, his latest annual gift to moviegoers everywhere, is as fresh and winning as ever."
Again, this tells us nothing, but there have been some seemingly-cogent rumors and talk that the movie is about a University professor (Phoenix) and his student (Stone) and their entanglements that may turn deadly (there's some reported details here if you'd like to take a look). Again, that's a rumor and not confirmed. No release date yet either, but SPC loves to put out Allen's movies in the spring or summer generally. "Irrational Man" marks the eighth collaboration with the filmmaker and Sony Classics.
