Woody Allen’s latest movie, “A Rainy Day in New York,” has been shelved by Amazon and may never be released. The movie — starring Timothée Chalamet, Selena Gomez, Jude Law and Elle Fanning — wrapped filming last fall, before the #MeToo movement refocused attention on the allegations of sexual abuse Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has made against him.
While the movie had been slated for 2018, Amazon now says, “No release date has ever been set for the film.”
Amazon is so desperate for content for its streaming service, it is in talks with Paramount and Sony about developing original movies. But it has shelved a finished film that it already bought for $25 million.
Allen’s deal with Amazon calls for three more movies, but that seems to be in limbo as well. The director has nothing coming out in 2019.
