Woody Allen filed a $68 million lawsuit against Amazon Studios on Thursday, claiming the streamer backed out of a deal because of “a 25-year-old baseless allegation.” According to Allen, Amazon has refused to release his film, A Rainy Day in New York, which has been complete for over six months. His suit alleges that Amazon has given vague reasons for dropping the project and for reneging on an agreement to produce three more movies. Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow, has long alleged that Allen sexually abused her when she was a child, an accusation he has denied.
