Marcia Gay Harden and Emma Stone in 'Magic in the Moonlight'

Sony Pictures Classics has snapped up their seventh Woody Allen acquisition, taking North American rights to the director's next film, "Magic in the Moonlight," a period piece set in the South of France in the 1920s. It stars Colin Firth as an Englishman who arrives to investigate a possible scam among the high society of the Riviera.

Eileen Atkins, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Simon McBurney, Hamish Linklater and Jacki Weaver also star.

SPC also nabbed 2013 hit "Blue Jasmine," "Midnight in Paris," "To Rome with Love," "Whatever Works," "Sweet and Lowdown" and "You Will Meet a Tall, Dark Stranger."

Meanwhile, Allen will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award at Sunday's Golden Globes, but as per usual he's not expected to make an appearance; Diane Keaton will instead do the honors on his behalf.
