Colin Firth Will Never Work With Woody Allen Again

By the time Dylan Farrow grew up and spoke out for the first time regarding the alleged abuse, Woody Allen had continued to make movies, worked with A-list actors, and has received numerous awards and nominations.

"A Rainy Day in New York" is the fourth project for Allen with Amazon, which bet heavily on the filmmaker to help establish its film production arm as a home to auteur filmmakers.

"I want to show my face and tell my story", she said in the interview, which aired Thursday.


In December last, Farrow wrote an op-ed repeating her claims and questioning why the movement against sexual violence had spared Allen.

Three days ago, Timothée Chalamet, who stars in the critically-acclaimed film "Call Me by Your Name", posted on his official Instagram account that he was giving his salary from starring in the yet-to-be-released Woody Allen film, "A Rainy Day in NY", to three nonprofit organizations. It's not the most verbose denunciation in the world, but it's an important one nonetheless: Each prominent actor or filmmaker who cuts ties with Allen is one less cinematic collaborator he can turn to, one more industry door slammed shut and perhaps most importantly, one more well-known male actor using his ample platform to amplify a message now resonating throughout Hollywood and beyond: Time's up.

Farrow said that in 1992, when she was 7 and her mother Mia Farrow was out shopping, Allen instructed her to play with her brother's train and then molested her. "I am credible and I am telling the truth", she insisted. "After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow's statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones - I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed", she wrote on Instagram. Allen was never charged. Dylan Farrow became visibly emotional. Woody Allen is 82 years old now, but he'll never be too old to be made to face the awful things he is alleged to have done. He gave me one of my first significant roles in film for which I have always been grateful, it was one day in my hometown - easy. I've also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere.


Call Me By Your Name's Timothée Chamolet will donate the money he got thanks to A Rainy Day in NY.

Further contradicting the assessment of Chalamet's representatives is the fact that one of Chalamet's co-stars in Allen's latest film did speak out in support of Dylan Farrow. She went public with it in 2014, too.

According to him, he couldn't say anything due to "contractual obligations". She said she was donating her salary from the film to Time's Up, the recently formed initiative to combat gender inequality in the entertainment industry.
