Woody Allen announces retirement

Woody Allen news

The renowned director told Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia that his next film will be his last.

Legendary American director Woody Allen has announced he will retire after his next film is completed.

In an interview with Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia on Saturday, Allen, 86, said his next movie will be his 50th, and the “idea, in principle, is not to make more movies and focus on writing.” He added that he would like to write a novel.

The filmmaker went on to hint that the book would not necessarily be light-hearted reading, but rather “serious.”

In late June, he revealed to the press that he would shoot his next film in Paris with a local cast.

Throughout his career, which spans more than five decades, Allen has not only directed movies and written screenplays, but also starred in some of his own films. He has won four Academy Awards – one for best director, and three for best original screenplay – and has been nominated more than a dozen times. He has also received nine British Academy Film Awards and the BAFTA Fellowship by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Among Allen’s most famous works are ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo’ (1985), ‘Crimes and Misdemeanors’ (1989), ‘Match Point’ (2005), and ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ (2008).

In the early 1990s, Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow, accused him of sexually abusing her when she was a child. The director vehemently denied the allegations and no charges were brought against him after an investigation.

The claims resurfaced with the rise of the #MeToo movement, turning Allen into something of a Hollywood pariah.

In 2020, his publisher, Hachette Book Group, decided not to publish his autobiography, though the director eventually found one willing to.

  1. It’s worth noting that the allegation against Woody Allen is fake. It was cooked up by Mia Farrow as revenge against Woody Allen when she discovered his relationship with the (over 18) Soon Yi.
    Mia Farrow was extra salty about it because Woody Allen had not done anything illegal. There were subsequently TWO different investigations carried out by two different agencies. IIRC, one was the Police, the other was another state agency. They both concluded the allegation was false and that Dylan Farrow had been coached.
    Full details here, from someone who was actually there at the time the alleged incident supposedly took place.

    • Nobody makes fake allegations against Jews, if you make these kind of allegations against these kind of people and you don’t end up homeless and destitute then they did it.

      • Dear “Anonymous” … it was Mia Farrow making the allegation. She wasn’t reliant on employment at that point anyway. She’s also well known for being somewhat of a nutcase.
        Anyway, thank you for your opinion. Perhaps you should ACTUALLY READ the ENTIRE statement from a person who was ACTUALLY THERE at the time the ALLEGED incident supposedly took place.
