That was just before the rise of #MeToo movement put the spotlight back on allegations of sexual abuse that Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has made against him.

Now, Amazon has told Page Six that ‘no release date has ever been set for the film.’

Allen still has three movies left in his deal with Amazon, but the agreement is now ‘in limbo.’
