Will Woody Allen’s Next Movie Ever Be Released?by

Some movies sink without trace or simply never get finished, nor the fanfare they were looking for, for various reasons – but generally, legendary director Woody Allen’s pictures come out to a form of celebration – on the whole. However, the writer and director has been in the news for very different reasons in recent weeks, with allegations resurfacing about his alleged sexual abuse of stepdaughter Dylan Farrow having caught new headlines across the US and the world. Farrow has recounted the alleged abuse in detail, which reportedly accused when she was a minor, which has led to many people boycotting Allen’s work and – in Hollywood itself – many of his previous collaborators, such as actor Colin Firth, have denounced his reported misconduct. It has also led to speculation as to whether or not his latest picture will make it to audiences at all.

The new movie – A Rainy Day in New York – stars Selena Gomez and Timothée Chalamet, and it is thought that we may never get to see the results at all. This is largely, of course, due to the knock-on effect of allegations against Allen – and as a result, the actions of some cast members electing to donate their fees for the movie to charity. Woody Allen is now a name that many are refusing to be associated with following Farrow’s detailed account of her reported abuse – and it seems, according to sources, that the movie will either be thrown out entirely or cast out with no fanfare. It seems fitting that, given the controversy that has arisen, the film be given a muted release – if unveiled at all.

An anonymous film executive spoke out about the saga behind Rainy Day and the controversy surrounding Allen and Farrow, concerned that no one had spoken out or reacted against the director until now. “It’s pathetic that it took the #MeToo movement for these actors to grow a pair of balls,” the source states. “It’s embarrassing that Allen’s been revered by Hollywood for years and constantly nominated for awards.”

The #MeToo movement – spurred on by allegations levelled at former movie boss Harvey Weinstein – continues to allow victims of abuse to speak up in a whole new way – meaning that for those too frightened to speak out before, there is now a wider audience who is willing to listen – on Twitter and beyond social media.
