Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Woody Allen Reaches $68M Settlement With Amazon Studios”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Allen sued Amazon Studios back in February for refusing to release his movie “A Rainy Day in New York,” according to a report published Monday by Page Six. The “Midnight In Paris” director claimed Amazon Studios pulled out of the deal after sexual abuse allegations against him resurfaced. Now, Amazon Studios will pay Allen $68 million.

“Amazon has tried to excuse its action by referencing a 25-year old, baseless allegation against Mr. Allen, but that allegation was already well known to Amazon (and the public) before Amazon entered into four separate deals with Mr. Allen,” the lawsuit reads.

Amazon reportedly backed out of the deal after Allen publicly insinuated that director Harvey Weinstein was the victim of a “witch hunt.” (RELATED: ‘I Would Consider Working With Him Again’: Jeff Goldblum Defends Woody Allen After Sexual Abuse Allegations)
