Woody Allen filed a $ 68 million lawsuit against Amazon Studios, claiming that Amazon violated a contract by refusing to distribute its latest movie and ending a four-image production and distribution deal without cause.
Allen says in the trial filed Thursday in the Southern District of New York by Gravier Productions and Allen that Amazon backed out to distribute his film "A New York's Rainy Day" back in June after claiming he sexually misunderstood his Adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, accusations that first discovered in August 1992. Allen has repeatedly denied these charges and in the lawsuit the allegations call "baseless". He is now seeking $ 68 million in compensation.
"Amazon has tried to apologize for its action by referring to a 25-year-old unfounded accusation against Mr. Allen, but this claim was already known to Amazon (and the public) before Amazon concluded four separate offers with Mr. Allen – and in any case do it PHOTO
