After director Woody Allen dropped hints about his impending retirement, his representative has officially denied those rumors.
Allen dropped another hint during the course of this past weekend in an interview with the Spanish newspaper “La Vanguardia” suggesting that he has no plans to continue making movies and will instead focus on authoring short stories and novels. Following the comment’s dissemination to the general public, Allen’s camp issued a denial of the claim.
Woody Allen has never mentioned that he plans to retire, nor has he mentioned that he is working on a novel. He revealed that he is considering retiring from the film industry because he finds it difficult to produce films that are released immediately or very fast on streaming services. He has stated that this is because he is a great admirer of watching movies in theaters. According to what his spokesperson said to Variety the other day, he does not plan to retire at this time and is extremely happy to be in Paris making his new movie, which will be his 50th.
The most recent installment of his filmography, “Wasp 22,” is now being shot in Paris, France.
Woody Allen has revealed that Rifkin’s Festival will take place in 2020. The movie only made $2.3 million at the box office and garnered negative reviews; some critics even called it his worst film.
He began work on a collection of short stories that would later be published under the title “Zero Gravity” while the Corona pandemic was in full swing. This year saw the release of the collection, which came after further allegations of sexual assault were brought to light in the documentary Allen v. Farrow, which was directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering.
Documentary series consisting of four parts that has been nominated for an Emmy and explores the alleged inappropriate sexual behavior of Woody Allen with his daughter Dylan Farrow. In 1992, her mother Mia Farrow leveled allegations of sexual misconduct against the filmmaker; now, in light of the #MeToo movement, the allegations are once again being investigated. Allen dismissed the allegations as false.
