In an interview with the New York Times (via Vulture) about his appearance in the next Fantastic Beasts film, Jude Law revealed that he’s saddened that his and others’ work in Woody Allen’s movie A Rainy Day In New York will never be seen. Sometimes, Jude, it’s a good idea during interviews to let your publicist hurriedly throw their body inbetween you and the interviewer while shrieking “NEXT QUESTION, PLEASE!”
Amazon has reportedly shelved the movie indefinitely and answered queries about it by stating that “no release date has ever been set for the film.”
Jude’s performance in what is probably a boring movie anyway must have been Streep-caliber because he thinks it should be seen. Either that or he’s not bright enough to know that you avoid the subject of the wizened one altogether if you’re a working actor in Hollywood.
“It’s a terrible shame. I’d love to see it. People worked really hard and put a lot in, obviously himself included.”
The interviewer pointed out that, unlike other actors who have worked with Woody like Rebecca Hall and Timothée Chalamet, Jude hasn’t publicly disavowed him.
“I didn’t really want to get involved, to be honest. I just don’t feel like it was my place to comment, and it’s too delicate a situation. I feel like enough has been said about it. It’s a private affair.”
But don’t think that means that Jude is giving it the full Diane Keaton/Javier Bardem vote when it comes to possibly working with the biggest supporter of the #MeToo movement (girl….) again. The former nanny-doer says that he’s undecided on that one.
“I don’t know. I’d have to consider carefully.”
There are other things to consider carefully, Young Gay Dumbledore. You should consider firing your PR person and hiring one who is bright enough to threaten the writer with the interview going to the morgue if a Woody Allen question is asked.
