Woody Allen decided to stop his cinema career; he made it known in an interview with the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia confirming that his next film would be the last.

After 50 films, 4 Oscars, 24 nominations, 4 Golden Globes, two awards at the Venice Film Festival, and many other film awards, the 86-year-old Woody Allen will retire with the idea of ​​devoting himself solely to writing.

“My upcoming film [number 50], I assume it to be a good time to quit”, he stated, “my idea, in principle, is to stop making films and concentrate on writing.”

In the following hours, he retracted, explaining that with that sentence, he did not intend to humiliate the hypothesis that, after the 50th title, he might still want to make another one.

Still, in any case, he reiterated his idea: the film number 50 would be a great way to conclude everything.

Woody Allen’s last upcoming film

Woody Allen‘s latest film will be titled Wasp 22 and set in Paris.

The director will start production in the fall and said that it will be similar to Match Point, the director’s film released in 2005 and that it will be “exciting, dramatic and also very sinister.”

In an interview with Alec Baldwin, broadcast live on Instagram, Woody Allen made it known months ago that he intended to direct at most “one or two other films.”

“Much of the thrill is gone,” explained Woody Allen, “Now you make a movie, and you find yourself for a couple of weeks at the cinema and then move on to streaming or pay-per-view.

It’s not the same. It’s not that funny to me.

‘The director’s two most recent films, A Rainy Day in New York of 2019 and Rifkin’s Festival, set in Spain in 2021, were released during the pandemic. Both came after Allen’s deal broke with Amazon due to renewed focus on sexual abuse allegations against the director.

Woody Allen is at the center of one of the most controversial stories of allegations of sexual violence in the world of cinema.

In 1992, the director and Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter Dylan reported that the director allegedly sexually abused her as a child.

For a long time, the complaint did not harm Woody Allen‘s career, and there was never a criminal trial.

In recent years, however, with the #MeToo movement and, more recently, with the release of the HBO documentary Allen v.

Farrow retracing the story, many actors and directors have distanced themselves.

Allen, therefore, is pursuing other activities: he recently published a comic book, Zero Gravity, and a play.
