Whatever Works 2009

Whatever Works is an upcoming 2009 comedy film written and directed by Woody Allen. The film is a black comedy featuring Larry David, Evan Rachel Wood, Patricia Clarkson, Kristen Johnston, Ed Begley, Jr., Michael McKean, and Henry Cavill. David stars as Boris Yelnikoff, an eccentric, misanthropic physicist from Greenwich Village who becomes entangled with a young girl from the south (played by Wood) and her parents.

The movie was filmed in New York City, marking Allen’s return to his native city after a four-film sojourn in Europe. “It’s very classic Woody Allen but it’s still different than anything he’s done,” revealed Wood in a December 2008 interview. On February 2, 2009, Variety reported that Sony Picture Classics had purchased U.S. distribution rights to Whatever Works. Sony will release the film on June 19, 2009. It premiered on April 22, 2009, at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
