Woody Allen Drops $68 Million Lawsuit Against Amazon

Both the ‘Annie Hall’ filmmaker and the streaming service have reached a settlement over his legal action contesting the termination of a multi-project deal they had made.

AceShowbizWoody Allen has agreed to drop his $68 million (£53.2 million) lawsuit against bosses at Amazon after reaching an undisclosed settlement.

The “Annie Hall” filmmaker filed the case earlier this year to contest the termination of a multi-project deal he made with studio executives after they stopped working with him, accusing them of backing out of the 2017 agreement over allegations of sexual abuse made against him by his estranged daughter, Dylan Farrow.

The Amazon executives subsequently insisted they fired Woody for comments he made about disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and the #MeToo movement – and his termination had nothing to do with his own sex abuse scandal.

On Friday, November 8, Allen and bosses at the streaming service filed legal documents in New York asking for the lawsuit to be “voluntarily dismissed with prejudice”, meaning it cannot be refiled.

Details of the settlement have not been disclosed.
