Woody Allen Offers Small Update On A Rainy Day In New York

Woody Allen has given Page Six the smallest update on his next film, A Rainy Day In New York. It includes our first confirmation from the director about the plot.

Says Allen:

“It’s a love relationship. I find rain romantic. Unfortunately, while we were shooting it didn’t rain. I had to make some myself.”

Indeed it didn’t rain, and part of the filming around New York involved large rain machines being carted around.

Page Six also suggests the plot will involve college seniors all in one weekend (not a day despite the title). No doubt those college are the characters played by Selena Gomez,Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning. We suspected as much from what we saw during production, but this seems to confirm it. It also explains why they go to such touristy locations in the film – actually a rarity for Allen these days when he shoots in New York.

We hear Allen is still working on the film’s post production. Page Six also appears to confirm the film will be released by Amazon, who has a deal with Allen at the moment.

The film also stars Rebecca Hall, Jude Law, Diego Luna and Liev Schreiber.

Hopefully we will learn a lot more about the film in the months to come.

  1. Man, this is outstanding news!!! Its just like that line in that old CCR song, “And I wonder, still I wonder, who’ll stop the rain?” Hopefully no one will stop this rain, this Rainy Day In New York. The world needs Woody’s films now more than ever. I’m looking forward to seeing this one on the big screen. If I remember correctly, several actors in this picture chose to succumb to pressure from the media and proclaimed publicly that they would not work with Woody again. Hopefully, if this film has a premiere, those who previously denounced Woody will come to their senses and be there to support the man. Its not too late to realize that you’ve taken the bad bait and fallen for Mia’s balderdash. His entire career Woody has done nothing but promote women and support them in their achievements.

    GO WOODY!!!!!!!!!!

    1. I agree! I am looking forward to seeing A Rainy Day in New York on the big screen this late-summer/early fall. I’m very pleased Amazon still plans to release it.

  2. Looking forward to seeing another Woody work of art. WONDER WHEEL had beautiful suffusions of color over riveting monologues and a fabulous evocation of ’50s Coney Island. The acting – – and characters drawn by the writing – – came alive. Fabulist and realistic, both. Woody’s craftsmanship still leaves most American directors, all but fellow veterans and Jim Jarmusch, far far behind.
    When Woody Allen shoots a film we’re seeing a rare display of talent and awareness honed over a lifetime in cinema, from back when cinema was the century’s major medium. Woody Allen is an Indispensable Man in a throwaway culture.

  3. I am dying to see this film. I was crushed to read Amazon had chosen not to release it. Woody Allen is my favorite director! Have there been any updates?
