Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American rights to Woody Allen's latest, Midnight in Paris.

Midnight in Paris is Woody Allen at his most magical," said SPC's Michael Barker and Tom Bernard in a joint statement. "We couldn’t be more pleased to be back with Woody, Letty and their entire team, as well as our friends at Mediapro.”

Letty Aronson, Steve Tenenbaum and Jaume Roures produced the film, which was financed by Mediapro, the Spain-based company that also funded Allen's last two films, Vicky Christina Barcelona and You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.

Paris stars Kathy Bates, Adrien Brody, Carla Bruni, Marion Cotillard, Rachel McAdams, Michael Sheen and Owen Wilson.   SPC also released Stranger, as well as Allen's Sweet and Lowdown and Whatever Works.   "They have great sensitivity toward my work," Allen says.
