Woody Allen caters to his penchant for irresistibly charming crime capers in the deliciously witty Scoop, coming to DVD for the first time from 9th February 2015, courtesy of Icon Film Distribution.
Written and directed by Allen (Magic In The Moonlight, Midnight in Paris) Scoop tells the story of journalism student Sondra Pransky (Scarlett Johannson - Under The Skin, Vicky Cristina Barcelona) who is visited by the spirit of deceased journalist Joe Strombel (Ian McShane - Snow White and the Huntsman, Coraline) whilst volunteering at a performance by American magician Sid Waterman (Allen). During the visitation, Strombel reveals his final major scoop - a tip-off that the notorious 'Tarot Card Killer', still at large in London, is in fact feted British aristocrat Peter Lyman (Hugh Jackman - X-Men: Days of Future Past, Les Misérables).
Teaming up with a reluctant Waterman to pursue the suspect, Sondra tracks down the enigmatic Lyman, and immediately finds herself irresistibly drawn to him. Embarking on an affair, she risks everything as she juggles their romance with the search for evidence that could lead her to the scoop of a lifetime...
