Woody Allen to begin shooting in Spain in July

Woody Allen is refusing to go away silently in face of resurfaced accusations of sexual assault against daughter, Dylan Farrow.

Allen is turning to Mediapro, the Spanish production company that handled some of his best work like Vicky Cristina Barcelona, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, and Midnight in Paris, for his next film which begins shooting in Spain this summer.

Here's more.

Locations

Allen's team is already scouting locations in Spain

Reports suggest Allen's team had already been scouting emblematic locations in Basque Country in northern Spain for the upcoming movie.

Following a meeting between Mediapro and San Sebastian-Gipuzkoa Film Commission, the commission released a statement saying that the meeting hammered out details of basic production necessities and permits that were required for a planned seven-week shoot that would start in July.

Support

Mediapro stands with Allen despite resurfaced allegations

Mediapro is standing by Allen despite the resurfaced allegations.

They said, "We have a 10-year relationship with Mr. Allen and, like all projects we produce, we judge the creator by its work. All of our projects have a unique personality, and we support all types of artistic voices and ideas and remain committed to producing well-defined and creative projects for audiences worldwide".

Amazon case

The same thing cannot be said for producers Amazon Studios

While Mediapro is extending their support to Allen, US-based Amazon Studios cut ties with him in light of the resurfaced allegations.

As we reported, Allen sued Amazon for $68 million or Rs. Rs. 484 crore after the streaming giants shelved his project A Rainy Day in New York and reneged on a multi-film deal they made with him, without legal or factual basis.

Familiarity

Allen shares a long relationship with Spain and San Sebastian

It seems like Allen is returning to familiar grounds after the industry has begun to shun him.

He shares a long history with Spain and San Sebastian.

In 2002 he received Spain's prestigious Princess of Asturias Award for the Arts, whose previous recipients include Martin Scorsese, Francis Ford Coppola, Bob Dylan.

He received the San Sebastian International Film Festival's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.
