Woody Allen agrees with Amazon and withdraws action on breach of contract



News agencies said Woody Allen's agreement with Amazon and withdrew the infringement action earlier this year.

Eighty-three-year-old director sued Amazon and demanded more than $ 68 million ($ 19 billion) in compensation for not selling a Rainy Day in New York despite his contracts. In 2017, four films were signed, but according to Allen, the company ended unilaterally in June last year on charges of harassment against him.

Ten years ago, the director was suspected of sexually assaulting his daughter's half-daughter, Dylan Farrow, in 1992. However, they were never charged for finding evidence.

In an action in Manhattan, Allen argued that Amazon was aware of unfounded claims at the time of signing the contract 25 years ago, was publicly disclosed in 2014, and therefore argued that they did not terminate the contract.

Amazon, on the other hand, argued that the contract was terminated because it made derogatory remarks about the MeToo movement and therefore believed it would never be affected by the benefits expected at the outset.

It is not known what the agreement between the director and the company is, but the anonymous sources familiar with the matter that an application was filed to the court on Friday night to end the case lost half of Deadline.
