Woody Allen plans to take a break from directing after his next film

The past decade has seen Woody Allen’s career go downhill after being blacklisted by many in Hollywood due to allegations of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, who said that Allen sexually abused her when she was 7 years old. The allegations are not new; they first appeared in 1992 Vanity Fair profile of Allen’s ex-wife, Mia Farrow, and in a guardianship lawsuit between Allen and Farrow that same year. But since no fees were given, news of the story dropped rapidly at the time.

In 2014, after Allen accepted the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes, Mia Farrow and Allen’s estranged son, Ronan Farrow, both condemned the tribute to the filmmaker’s career. , while reiterating allegations of abuse. Soon after, Dylan Farrow wrote publicly about the alleged sexual abuse publicly for the first time, in an open letter published in the magazine. The New York Times. Allen has always denied the allegations, describing them as “clearly wrong. “

In 2019, Allen’s movie “A Rainy Day in New York” was put on hold by Amazon Studios, prompting the director to sue Amazon for $68 million (the lawsuit was eventually settled in court). Allen’s most recent film, “Rifkin’s Festival” (pictured above), was released to mixed reviews and while it grossed $2.3 million internationally, made only $24,000 in limited release in the United States.

Allen told La Vanguardia that his 50th and likely final film, “Wasp 22,” will be similar to “Match Point” and described it as “interesting, dramatic, and also very sinister.”
