Woody Allen's 'A Rainy Day in New York' Has Reportedly Been Shelved
Published Aug 30, 2018Still faced with decades-old allegations of sexual abuse from his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, we recently learned that Woody Allen was taking a filmmaking break, possibly due to a lack of funding. Adding to those rumours, Amazon appears to have shelved his next project.
A Rainy Day in New York has already completed production, though not without controversy — stars like Timothée Chalamet donated their wages to non-profit organizations following backlash from their involvement in the project.
That said, Page Six reports that the film has been shelved indefinitely. When reached for comment, Amazon said, "No release date has ever been set for the film."
A Rainy Day in New York cost the streaming service $25 million USD. It's part of their $80 million, five-film deal with the director. That said, Amazon is reportedly trying to pay him out of the contract and part ways.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
