Amazon might not release Woody Allen's already completed "A Rainy Day in New York"

Ronan and Dylan's brother Moses Farrow has vehemently defended his dad, Woody Allen, over the years saying “My mother [Mia Farrow] drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister, and I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.” However, Ronan Farrow, a reputable journalist, who helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein scandal for The New Yorker a few months ago (and signed a three-year deal this week with HBO to head up investigative documentaries), stands by his assertions that sexual abuse did happen. It’s a polarizing and infuriating scandal and the noise around it is not about to quell anytime soon.
Now Insiders are predicting that Woody's next film,  “A Rainy Day in New York” might not even be released, and if it "ever sees the light of day, none of its actors will even support their own work."
“There will be no premiere, no print or TV ads, no interviews. No one will promote it,” said a movie distribution executive.
“I wonder if it will even make Cannes?” speculated a film festival insider of the May event. “The French love him and don’t care about sex scandals. [Actresses Brigitte Bardot and Catherine Deneuve have scoffed at the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.] But Amazon does. Jeff Bezos is not dumb.”
"Allen can always go back to his old way of making movies — rather than raising production funds from Amazon or a traditional studio, he used to have his producer and sister, Letty Aronson, collect financial support from wealthy individuals in Europe."
“He will keep on making films, maybe in Europe, maybe with unknowns,” said another Hollywood insider of the director, whose films have never been big moneymakers. (His highest grossing is 2011’s “Midnight in Paris,” which earned nearly $57 million domestically.)
"Sources tell The Post that the film, which is due to be distributed by Amazon later this year, may not make it to the screen."
“‘Rainy Day’ will either not come out or [will] get dumped by Amazon without any p.r. or theatrical release,” said one film-industry executive."
Representatives for Amazon did not return requests for comment.
The one thing Allen has always had going for him — his ability to attract Hollywood’s brightest and best names — might be over.
According to the executive, “He’s having trouble casting his new film.”
This comes on the heels of the news that stars who have worked with the director are now disavowing him and donating their earnings from his movies to charity.

"Disgusting, bullshit...McCarthyism...people crumbling and turning out of fear...mass public shaming....this is a disgraceful moment. Will Woody get hounded out of moviemaking? I don't know. I hope not. That would honestly crush my heart. I mean, I feel there are European financiers that would fund him. People know that Mia is a brainwasher who abused her kids. But they CAN'T SAY THAT Because that would be BLAMING THE VICTIM. I think we are fucked. The more times Trump does something like "shithole"...all white males pay. You can protest Trump 24 hours a day...you will still pay."
