Amazon is going all in on the Woody Allen business. The streaming-video giant has made some decisive moves in their quest to supplant Netflix as the dominant player in this increasingly crowded marketplace, one of which was landing Woody Allen for an original TV series back in January 2015. Last time he checked in about it, Allen wasn’t doing so hot with the TV format — he told Deadline that he “regretted every second since I said okay” to helming the six-episode series for Amazon — but he evidently enjoyed working with the studio, because Amazon has now announced that they will release Allen’s untitled next film.

We weren’t quite sure what to make of news that Woody Allen would develop his first TV project for Amazon (evidently, neither was Woody), and our days of confusion are certainly coming to a middle. Not only do we know that Allen himself will star in the ‘60s-set project with Elaine May, but so too will … Miley Cyrus? What? Come on, that can’t be right. There’s no way we’re prin -

A few days ago we learned that Bruce Willis had abruptly exited Woody Allen’s upcoming untitled project, less than 24 hours after photos showed Willis filming a scene on set. Willis’ departure caused a bizarre amount of speculation, with rumors circulating about his commitments to Misery on Broadway, though the most likely reason for Willis leaving was that he just wasn’t right for the part. It seems as though Allen has already found his replacement, and all is right in the Woody Allen universe.

Yesterday, photos of Bruce Willis filming director Woody Allen’s latest (and currently untitled) movie surfaced online and the everything seemed fine. Just another late-era Allen production that inexplicably features a killer line-up of movie stars! Move along, nothing to see here!

When last we heard from Amazon’s Woody Allen-scripted series, the revered (as well as reviled) filmmaker amusingly expressed his regret and reticence over the deal, noting that he’d never written for television before. Well, ol’ Woody appears to have made some progress, as Amazon execs claim the majority of scripts have been completed, with the series likely to bow in 2016.

We’d all but forgotten that cinema icon Woody Allen had signed to develop his first-ever TV series for Amazon streaming, and the director apparently wishes we had. A new interview sees Allen candidly admitting complete regret toward signing onto the series, as well that Amazon could be “crushed with disappointment” at the results in 2016.

Not a year goes by without a new Woody Allen film, so even when he delivers a so-so product, there’s always the promise of a better film around the corner. This year brings Irrational Man, which is set to make its debut at Cannes next month ahead of its summer release. The first trailer has arrived to promote the Cannes premiere, and looks to feature rather charming performances from Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.

Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but the prolific director has already begun planning his next project, which isn’t exactly surprising. Allen, who has consistently delivered one film each year, has selected an interesting trio of actors to headline his next, untitled project: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg and Bruce Willis.
