Penelope Cruz’s second project with Woody Allen will definitely hit theaters in the United States next summer…

The 37-year-old Spanish actress—who scored a Best Supporting Actress Oscar after appearing in Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2008—appears in the legendary director’s next film, Nero Fiddled.

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all North American and United Kingdom rights to the Allen’s film, which was shot in Rome over the summer, and they have big hops it will translate into a hit when they release it next year.

“More laughs in this one than you can imagine,” says Sony Pictures Classics. “We know it’s a bit premature, but thank you Woody and company, for granting us the perfect summer comedy of 2012. Keep ‘em coming.”

Along with Cruz, the romantic comedy stars Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Jesse Eisenberg and Ellen Page.
