Woody Allen sues Amazon

Director Woody Allen sued Amazon Studios saying he deserves at least $68 million (USD) in damages for its refusal to distribute his completed movie “A Rainy Day in New York”.

The 83-year-old accused Amazon of backing out without reason, after allegations that he had molested his adopted daughter in 1992.

Allen has long denied the allegation by Dylan Farrow and her mother Mia Farrow, who was Allen’s longtime partner and starred in several of his movies. He has not been charged.

The allegation gained renewed attention in the #MeToo movement and some actors who have appeared in Allen’s films have expressed regret working with him.

The breach-of-contract lawsuit was filed with the District Court in Manhattan. Amazon did not respond to any requests for comment.
