Director Woody Allen and Amazon's film production have settled the lawsuit with four pop-ups. Allen sued Amazon in February for at least $ 68m (62m euros). The company had earlier canceled the US distribution of the already completed "One Rainy Day in New York" to re-examine allegations of abuse in the 1990s and basically canceled production of three other contracted films. An explanation for the ruling announced Friday by a New York court did not provide any financial details or possible compensation.
Amazon's movie business announced in June 2018 to end its collaboration with Allen and referred to the rape allegations against his then seven-year-old daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992. Allen denies the allegations. There has never been an indictment or judgment.
When Amazon entered into an agreement with Allen, the allegations were not new. However, in recent years in Hollywood and in parts of society, more attention has been paid to this issue in the wake of the charges against producer Harvey Weinstein and the ensuing debate for me.
