Woody Allen Makes a "Match" With DreamWorks

by | June 3, 2005 | Comments

Woody Allen‘s well-received entry into the Cannes Film Festival, "Match Point," has been snatched up by DreamWorks Pictures for a cool $4 million. Described as much darker in tone than many of Mr. Allen‘s recent comedies, "Match Point" is a dramatic thriller that stars Jonathan Rhys-Meyers ("Bend It Like Beckham"), Scarlett Johansson ("The Island"), Emily Mortimer ("Dear Frankie"), Matthew Goode ("Chasing Liberty"), and Brian Cox ("X-Men 2").

The Hollywood Reporter indicates that the plot is about "a social-climbing tennis instructor who marries into a wealthy family." This is the first film that Woody Allen has shot in England, although he plans to do another one there before the end of the year. The deal marks a reunion of sorts for Woody Allen and the DreamWorks folks; his old-three picture deal with the studio yielded "Small Time Crooks," "The Curse of the Jade Scorpion," and "Hollywood Ending." DreamWorks aims to release "Match Point" around Awards Season, which is a pretty promising sign for all involved — especially the moviegoers!
