The studio produced the movie as part of its multi-project deal with the “Annie Hall” and “Midnight in Paris” Oscar winner and had plans to release it in theaters in late 2018 or 2019. The title was shelved indefinitely after Allen’s adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, brought her allegations of child molestation against the director back into the national spotlight in January 2018 as the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements were entering the mainstream.

“A Rainy Day in New York” stars Elle Fanning and Timothee Chalamet as a young couple who take a trip to New York City that threatens to tear their relationship apart. Fanning’s character runs off to interview a famous movie director, while Chalamet finds himself alone and stumbling onto the set of a student film. The supporting cast includes Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Liev Schrieber, and Diego Luna. Allen self-released the first trailer for the movie on his Facebook page earlier this month.
