Woody Allen withdraws his complaint against Amazon Studios for breach of contract. The filmmaker and the film studio have found a solution to their disagreements outside the courtroom and filed a petition with the court on Friday for the closure of the case, the Hollywood Reporter reported Saturday.
The details of the Allen-Amazon agreement were not disclosed.
In February, the director demanded compensation of more than 68 million dollars (around 60 million euros) from the film studio. After allegations of sexual misconduct to Allen, Amazon would not have released his completed film A Rainy Day in New York and stopped a big deal with the director.
The film studio found its decision justified because Allen's daughter, Dylan Farrow, had declared as a child to have been abused by him in 2018. Furthermore, the 83-year-old Allen had it for the film producer Harvey Weinstein, who is discredited for sexual misconduct.
A Rainy Day in New York was completed in 2017. The film premiered in Poland at the end of July and was released in Europe through other distributors. The film does not yet have a distributor in the United States.
