Weeks after filmmaker Woody Allen filed a lawsuit against Amazon for allegedly backing out of a multi-film deal, he will reportedly start shooting his new film this summer. According to New York Times, the 83-year-old Oscar-winning director will head to Spain to shoot the project.
Barcelona-based conglomerate Mediapro, which previously worked with Allen on “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “Midnight in Paris”, is reportedly working with the director on the film.
“We have a 10-year relationship with Mr Allen. Like all projects we produce, we judge the creator by its work,” Mediapro told the Times in a statement regarding its decision to work Allen despite public backlash stemming from Farrow’s allegations of sexual abuse.
