Amazon not releasing new Woody Allen movie as planned

“Oh no! For the first time since 1981 there will be no Woody Allen this year,” lulzed Joe Berkowitz, speaking for me also, and everyone who's grossed out by Woody Allen.

“NOW how will we get our required annual dosage of shrewish women complicating a nervous man's life?”

Excerpt from Joe's piece for Fast Company:

Page Six has reported that Amazon Studios is indefinitely shelving A Rainy Day in New York, a film that stars the vocally remorseful Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Hall, along with Selena Gomez, Jude Law, and Elle Fanning. Allen and the cast shot the film last fall, just before everyone in the world remembered that sexual abuse is bad. With Allen’s last film, Wonder Wheel, having tanked at the box office, and with Dylan Farrow’s allegations against the filmmaker finally being taken more seriously, Amazon must sense the animosity that will greet the next Woody Allen movie. Despite being locked into a five picture-deal with the director since 2016, an Amazon spokesman said of A Rainy Day in New York, “No release date has ever been set for the film.” Now that it’s no longer slated to arrive in 2018, this will be the first year without a new Woody Allen movie since 1981.
