Woody Allen and Amazon end legal battle

Wooden Allen and Amazon movie deals ends with lawsuit-2 Woody Allen & Amazon Reach Settlement In $68M Lawsuit From ‘Manhattan’ Director
Lora Ball | 10 November, 2019, 18:35

Wooden Allen's claims were "Amazon can not cancel the deal of writer-director next four films which minimum guaranteed payment was $68 million and $73 million".

Terms were not announced by attorneys for Allen and Amazon on Friday night.

In his lawsuit, Allen had claimed Amazon knew of the allegations and owed him United States dollars 68 million in guaranteed payments.

Amazon countered in court papers that Allen's comments related to the #MeToo movement, which began in late 2017, ensured that the company could never receive the expected benefits from its contract with Allen, justifying its decision to end their relationship. Allen's daughter Dylan had accused him of molesting her when she was a girl, and Allen has denied the allegations.

In 2018, Amazon halted the release of A Rainy Day in NY and then canceled a deal for three more films.

Allen did not attend the April hearing; his lawyer, John Quinn, told the judge that Amazon initially claimed it was ending the deal because of sexual abuse allegations made against Allen, not because of his incendiary remarks.

"Scores of actors and actresses expressed profound regret for having worked with Allen in the past, and many declared publicly that they would never work with him in the future", Amazon's attorneys said.

Allen sued Amazon in February after it cancelled a four-movie deal with him.

The filmmaker had sued Amazon in February after the online giant ended his 2017 contract without ever releasing a completed film, "A Rainy Day in NY". It has grossed $11.5 million in theaters around the globe.
