Woody files a lawsuit of $68 million against Amazon studios as it refused to release his film “A Rainy Day in New York.” Amazon tried to explain about the 25-year-old baseless allegation against Woody but the allegation was already known to Amazon and the public and in any course, there is no such reason for Amazon to not release the film.

Dylan Farrow Allen’s daughter earlier filed a case about Allen sexually harassing her during her childhood though Allen denied the allegations. Reports say Amazon earlier proposed a delay of releasing the film starring  Timothee Chalamet, Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning and Jude Law to which Allen agreed.

The suit claims of Amazon contacting Allen about not distributing the film or any other remaining films in the four-film deal. Six months later after this termination notice was sent by Amazon to Allen about not releasing his film due to impractical events and allegations against him but Allen claimed it to be completely vague and false.

Allen’s previous films Wonder Wheel and Cafe Society were released on Amazon. During the release of Cafe Society on Amazon in 2016, Allen stated: “Like all relationships, there is much hope, the lawsuits come later.” The lawsuit against Amazon seeks $68 million in addition to damages and fees. The lawsuit was filed in New York Southern District.
