"Getting money in this country is impossible," Aronson told TOH earlier this year. "It would be nice to do a film in the U.S. again. But in Europe there is greater regard for the filmmaker.

Now Allen can shoot his next film in the U.S., reports Variety. San Francisco and "a tiny bit" of New York are his next two primary locations, Allen revealed in Rome at the world premiere of his latest film "To Rome with Love." (The Sony Pictures Classics release will make its North American debut as the opener of the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14.)
