Woody Allen, after "Zero Gravity", threatens to retire

Allen will be shooting a movie next fall, which may be his last.


Film director Woody Allen has said he will be shooting a new movie in Paris this fall, and that it may be his last.

Allen, 86, spoke in a rare interview yesterday with actor Alec Baldwin about his career and his new book: Zero Gravity, a collection of humorous articles.

"A lot of the excitement is gone," Allen added of making films.

When I was making the movie, it was shown in cinemas all over the country.

Now you make the movie and you get two weeks to show it in a movie theater, maybe six or four weeks, before it goes straight to webcasting or pay-per-view services.”

"It's not fun for me," he said.

Allen did not give details of his next movie, which will be his 50th.

Allen, the four-time Academy Award winner and director of "Annie Hall" and other comedies, has repeatedly denied the accusation that he molested his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, in 1992.

Celebrities distanced themselves from Allen after the #MeToo movement went global in 2017, bringing a new spotlight to sexual misconduct.

Baldwin did not raise the issue during the interview, which was broadcast live on Baldwin's Instagram page.
