SCOUTING IN SPAIN: Woody Allen is to begin new film project after securing financing from Barcelona company

WOODY Allen has begun scouting filming locations around Spain for a new project.

It comes after the American director, 83, secured financing for a new film from Barcelona-based Mediapro.

The Spanish company previously financed Vicky Christina Barcelona and Midnight in Paris.

It told The New York Times: “We have a 10-year relationship with Mr. Allen and, like all projects we produce, we judge the creator by its work.”

The partnership comes after Allen lost his lucrative distribution deal with Amazon following a slew of accusations of molestation and sexual misconduct.

After his own adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow accused Allen of assaulting her, Amazon shelved the director’s A Rainy Day in New York project and officially ended the relationship.

Allen is currently suing the tech and distribution giant for $68 million for breach of contract.

His new project in Spain does not yet have a working title and the plot is unknown.
