Woody Allen to retire
Woody Allen told the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that he planned to stop making movies and spend more time writing in his later years while in Europe to work on his 50th feature.
His upcoming project, which is anticipated to be his last, will be entirely shot in France and is set in Paris.
After his daughter Dylan Farrow resurfaced allegations that he had molested her when she was 7 years old, the 86-year-old Oscar-winning director’s career came under fire from the public.
He has repeatedly denied the allegations, including in a 2020 memoir called Apropos of Nothing, and no criminal charges were brought against him at the time.
Due to the abuse allegations against him, Allen has started filming more frequently in Europe since his popularity in the United States has plummeted.
The controversial actor is presently working on Wasp22, his final film and 50th overall.
