Woody Allen (86) has no plans to stop making films. A spokesperson for the director announced this to American media on Monday after rumors about this were circulating.
The misunderstanding arises after an interview with a Spanish newspaper , in which Woody says that he wants to stop after his fiftieth film. “He has never said he wants to stop,” his spokesman said. “But he prefers not to make films that go straight to a streaming platform. He is a big fan of the cinema experience.”
In June, the American filmmaker already says during an interview with Alec Baldwin that he plans to direct ‘one or two more’ films. “When I used to make movies, they went to movie houses all over the country. Now you make a movie that shows in a movie house for a few weeks, maybe six or four, before it goes to a streaming service or pay channel. It’s not the same . I like it much less,” he says at the time.
The diminished enjoyment of his job may also be related to the fact that he has received less support in Hollywood since allegations of sexual abuse. His daughter Dylan says she was abused by him when she was a child. The director denies that.
