UPDATE: After reports of his retirement were published, Woody Allen’s spokesman released this statement: “Woody Allen never said he was retiring, he didn’t say he was writing another novel. He said he was thinking about not making movies, because making movies isn’t that much fun for him, who goes directly or very quickly to streaming platforms as he is a great lover of the cinema experience.At the moment he has no intention of retiring and is very excited to be in Paris to shoot his new film which will be the 50th. .”
ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Woody Allen recently announced that he is done making movies. While spending some time in Europe directing his latest film, he spoke to a Spanish the newspaper called La Vanguardia. According to his interview there, he plans to get out of the film industry to pursue writing more seriously. Allen has published a number of memoirs, as well as some collections of comic musings.
Allen’s past is complicated, to say the least. He rose to prominence as a writer and stand-up comedian, then became a huge star in the 1970s directing his own films such as Bananas, Annie Halland Manhattan. He was a close creative and romantic partner to Mia Farrow from 1980 to 1996, who starred in many of his films during that period. They ended their relationship, and Allen later dated and married Soon-Yi Previn, Farrow’s adopted daughter.
During Allen and Farrow’s breakup, he was first accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter Dylan. Allen denied the charges and was never charged with a crime. Although the allegations garnered enormous publicity in the 1990s, Allen was able to continue his career with very little interruption throughout the decade and into the 2000s. But in the mid-2010s, Dylan renewed her accusations against him. This time. the American film business largely cut ties with Allen; back in 2018, Allen’s film A rainy day in New York was supposed to debut through Amazon Studios, but they pulled it as concerns about his past scandals boiled over. In 2020, his memoirs, Speaking of Nothingwas canceled by Hachette, although it was later acquired and published by another publisher.
His next film, Wasp 22, said to be his last. He likes it for his movie Match balland that it would be “dramatic, serious and also very creepy.”
