Shortly after suing Amazon Studios for shelving Woody Allen‘s last movie A Rainy day in New York, the director is set to film his upcoming movie in Spain in July.
Woody Allen’s New Movie Shooting in Spain
After the lawsuit against Amazon, Woody Allen is leaning towards Mediapro, a Spanish production company, for a new movie. The company handled some of his best works like Vicky Cristina Barcelona, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and Midnight in Paris as well.

Mediapro and San Sebastian-Gipuzkoa Film Commission released a statement after their meeting. The production company stated their meeting focused on the details of basic production necessities and permits required for a planned seven-week shoot starting this summer.
As per several speculations, Allen’s team started visiting emblematic locations like the city of San Sebastián in Spain’s mountainous Basque Country in northern Spain for the upcoming movie.
After the allegation of molestation resurfaced from Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow against Allen, the director saw too much criticism.

Amidst the allegations, Mediapro, however, is standing tall supporting the director stating they judge the creator by its work.
We have a 10-year relationship with Mr. Allen and, like all projects we produce, we judge the creator by its work. All of our projects have a unique personality, and we support all types of artistic voices and ideas. And, remain committed to producing well-defined and creative projects for audiences worldwide.
While Mediapro is supporting Allen, US-based Amazon severed ties with the director following the resurfaced media scrutiny.
Previously, Allen sued Amazon for $68 million after Amazon refused to release his last movie A Rainy Day in New York and breached multi-film deal they made with him, without legal or factual basis.
A Rainy Day In New York was shot two years ago with Timothee Chalamet and Elle Fanning in starring roles. However, the film has not hit the theaters after Amazon elected not to release it.
