Selena Gomez’s Controversial Woody Allen Movie May Never Be Released

By  | 

Mandy Teefey tried to warn her daughter against being a part of a movie directed by accused child molester Woody Allen, but Selena Gomez refused to listen. She filmed A Rainy Day in New York with the controversial director last fall, all while avoiding questions about working with the 82-year-old. Now, however, it appears that the film may never even see the light of day.

Insiders tell Page Six that Amazon decided to shelve the flick, which means it might never come out. ARDINY was supposed to come out this year, but company sources now explain that “no release date has ever been set for the film.”

Timothée Chalamet, who stars alongside SelGo in the movie, previously announced that he would donate his entire salary from A Rainy Day in New York to charities because he doesn’t “want to profit” from the work. His decision came after the #MeToo Movement really gained traction in Hollywood and countless celebrities came forward to speak about their experience with sexual assault and harassment.

“I don’t want to profit from my work on the film,” he said, “and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities. I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

Woody was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was just seven years old. The famed director went on trial in 1993 for his daughter’s allegations, but there was not enough evidence and he was found not guilty. The now-33-year-old, however, still holds firm that the sexual assault DID, in fact, happen.
