What will happen to Woody Allen's "Rainy Day in New York"? With Amazon having taken hostage his latest film, due to the smear campaign concocted by Ronan and Mia Farrow, 2018 will be the first year that Allen won't release a new film since 1982. And, despite the backlash, Allen, speaking to the New York Post's PageSix columnist Cindy Adams, said he is continuing to write screenplays. The 82-year-old filmmaker confessed “I’m a writer. It’s what I am,” he said. “What I do. What I always will be. I’ll write. Since I continually have ideas it’ll be new ideas and I’ll write new things,” he added.
