The film marks Woody Allen's first major foray into Italian-language filmmaking.
Bop Decameron is set in contemporary Rome, and is loosely inspired by Giovanni Boccaccio's "The Decameron," the classic collection of 100 bawdy novellas written in the 1350s, and consists of four separate vignettes.
Two are stories with American characters set in Rome, while the other two involve Italian characters, also set in Rome. The vignettes never intersect.
Bop Decameron begins production July 11 in Rome.
