Amazon Studios has sued democratic filmmaker Woody Allen against them in their decision not to distribute his film
One Day in New York and cancel his deal with the studio, different reports. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed.
Allen sued Amazon in February for $ 68 million after the studio translated his film and canceled the deal they signed with him in good fortune in 2016. That deal was made when the studio entered. in the movie business, before studio head Roy Price pushed into his own cloud of sexual harassment allegations. Allen brought Amazon's credit to Hollywood when they needed it:
Café Society opened Cannes after Amazon bought it; the studio's first self-distributed film was Wonder Wheel – but they were also obliged to remain in the Woody Allen business, complete with guaranteed payments and distribution requirements, none of which Amazon met through -istante A rainy day in New York . Amazon has also been reported on the hook for three more Woody Allen films after A Raining Rain in New York none of which is yet to be produced or distributed. Allen's next film, Rifkin's Festival was shot in Spain this summer. It stars Gina Gershon and Christoph Waltz as an American couple who love other people while attending the San Sebastian International Film Festival.
Amazon claimed in court that Allen's deal was not found because of his comments about Harvey Weinstein and increased investigation into Allen's history of the #MeToo movement. The director complained, not without reason, that Amazon knew about previous accusations against him when they hired him. Allegations of Allen abusing his kidnapped daughter Dylan Farrow were first introduced in 1992; Farrow wrote his open letter about the allegations, which Allen has consistently denied, in 2014. The morning
Café Society opened Cannes, Ronan Farrow called the Amazon a Hollywood Reporter essay about Allen ; at that point his first Harvey Weinstein story was still a year and a half away. And now, in another strange social environment, under unspecified terms, Amazon's relationship with Woody Allen is over.
