Rainy Day in New York, A: Woody Allen’s New Film Shelved, Dividing Actors

Actor Jude Law spoke about his Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to the New York Times and its shelved state amid the #MeToo movement.

Ensemble-driven, Rainy Day in New York also stars Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber.

“It’s a terrible shame,” Law said. “I’d love to see it. People worked really hard and put a lot in, obviously himself included.”

Law said, “I didn’t really want to get involved, to be honest. I just don’t feel like it was my place to comment, and it’s too delicate a situation. I feel like enough has been said about it. It’s a private affair.”

In late 2017, Allen faced resurfaced allegations of child molestation by his daughter Dylan Farrow, who claimed in a New York Times open letter in 2014 that Allen had molested her as a child.

Allen has long denied the allegations, which were first reported during his explosive 1992 split from Farrow. The director was not charged.

Several actors who had worked with the director donated their salaries, claiming they would never work with him again.

Jude Law said he would have “to consider carefully” working with Allen again.

The acting community seems to be divided about the Allen case.
