(Newser) – Woody Allen, who has come under renewed scrutiny over daughter Dylan Farrow's 1992 abuse allegations in the wake of the #MeToo movement, may never see his latest film released. Amazon Studios signed a five-film deal with Allen in 2016, but struggled to get wide theatrical distribution for last year's Wonder Wheel due to the increased scrutiny surrounding the director. Now, Amazon Studios says "no release date has ever been set" for A Rainy Day in New York, the Guardian reports. The production company was contractually obligated to distribute the film, and sources say the decision to shelve it could cost Amazon $25 million. Some of the stars have said they regretted their work on the film, and at least four donated their salaries to anti-harassment groups, the AV Club reports. It's not clear what will become of the three films left on the deal, Page Six reports. (Read more Woody Allen stories.)
