Woody Allen settles $68 million lawsuit with Amazon

Amazon, the world’s largest retailer that manages to avoid paying any federal taxes, couldn’t avoid paying disgraced filmmaker Woody Allen to stop making movies.

Amazon had a four-picture deal with Allen.

But the online giant cancelled plans to release his 2018 movie, A Rainy Day in New York, as well as future flicks in the wake of allegations from Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow that he had molested her when she was a young girl. Allen denies the allegations. He sued Amazon in February for breach of contract, claiming Amazon already knew about those allegations and therefore still owed him $68 million.

Terms of the settlement have not been disclosed.
