I don’t judge actors for working with people like Woody Allen simply because there’s no way to know whether or not the actor was aware of allegations at the time they signed onto the film. If they start publicly defending a collaborator such as Allen when confronted about the allegations, well, that’s an entirely different story.
Chalamet in particular has been dodging questions about the Allen film, which I believe is fair considering the promotion of that film hasn’t begun yet. His most recent response when asked about the Allen film was pretty revealing:
Interviewer: Any qualms Timothée about working with Woody Allen? I mean your next film has him as the director and as you know he’s been accused by his daughter of sexual abuse. He’s never been charged, never been arrested, none of that. But I wonder whether you think about it and whether you ask, how has he escaped the #MeToo revolution?
TC: It’s going to be really important for me to talk about that and to really…there’s….I hesitate to talk about it right now because what I say will only, it’s only going to anger…people. So when that film comes out – if it comes out – that’s gonna be really important to talk about but that’s not the time right now.
If he thinks his future statement will “anger people,” then he either foresees (1) angering Allen / Amazon / etc by speaking out against Allen or (2) angering fans and the public by defending Allen. We’re reaching a point where no decent publicist would let a client defend Allen in the press, so…
Anyways, it’s his comment “if it comes out” that I find particularly interesting. I wonder if Amazon is contemplating not releasing it, or just giving a lowkey release directly on their streaming service. It wouldn’t surprise me at all.January 11, 2018 at 11:45 pm #1202465239
The Allen news is not new. Between Call Me by Your Name and Lady Bird, Chalamet’s career was doing just fine. Thread deletion can only be done by a moderator.January 11, 2018 at 11:56 pm #1202465243

Then we’re screwed. They don’t pay attention. We just have to let it die.
Chalamet has been on my radar since Homeland. He played a character that was very close to Brody’s daughter, notably the most annoying character in the history of television. I had a feeling he was going to become something.
When I watched Miss Stevens at the end of 2016, I kind of told myself “I told you so!” He’s pretty good in that; a role that could have been a disaster in the hands of a more self-serious young actor. Have yet to see any of his three films from 2017.January 12, 2018 at 12:06 am #1202465247This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.January 12, 2018 at 12:09 am #1202465251

This is news to ME. I thought “A Rainy Day In New York” was the original title of Wonder Wheel when I read about it from an article from earlier this year. I got confused, but now that I know this is a different movie that stars an actor as genuinely talented as Timothee I’m pissed off.
I meant that the allegations against Woody Allen have been very much in the public eye since 1992, with renewed interest since 2014.January 12, 2018 at 12:29 am #1202465273
I honestly can’t even tell if teridax is being serious or just mocking the kinds of people who would react like that, and it’s driving me bonkers.
At any rate, I think it’s a bit premature to be dragging any of the Rainy Day cast. They’re still caught up in last season’s film cycle. I wouldn’t be surprised if some/all of them refuse to promote the film, donate their salaries, and/or outright denounce the project. But none of that will happen until attention is shifted from 2017’s films to 2018’s projects.
My gut tells me the film is going to be very quietly released and that none of the stars will promote it. We’ll get some “I didn’t know when I signed the contract, and now that I do know I wish I’d never done it” type statements and they’ll all wash their hands of it… which is pretty much the best they can do now that it’s already been filmed.
