Filming will take place until the end of August in San Sebastian, home of the film festival.
Also in the cast are Spanish actors Elena Anaya ("The Skin Where I Live") and Sergi Lopez ("The Labyrinth of the Faun").
The new project by Allen, 83, is another example of his love affair with major European cities: in 2008 he launched "Vicky Cristina Barcelona", which was held in the Catalan capital and was also financed by Mediapro. The same producer was responsible for "Midnight in Paris" (2011) and other films had Rome and London as scenery.
This project, without an official title, will be the director's 51st feature.
"Rainy Day in New York": Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Diego Luna, Rebecca Hall and Liev Schreiber, will arrive in several European countries, including Portugal (October 24). part of the cast of yet another romantic comedy that follows the story of two college lovers who decide to spend a special weekend in New York and end up involved in tricky situations.
The European debut contrasts sharply with the situation in the US, where Woody Allen sued the Amazon group in early February for breach of contract, blaming the Internet giant for canceling the film's debut and ending production deals. The lawsuit is in progress and may be tried in 2020.
Amazon has confirmed it has broken its commitment to fund four films totaling $ 68 million, justifying the decision by "repeated charges" against the filmmaker and his "controversial statements."
The image of Woody Allen has deteriorated since the #MeToo movement began in October 2017 and was hit by the return of allegations of sexual abuse made by his adopted daughter Dylan, which would have occurred in 1992.
At the time, the director always denied them and the files were filed after two separate investigations.
Several actors and actresses who worked with him distanced themselves publicly and said they would not do it again, including part of the cast of the new film: Chalamet, Gomez and Hall came out to say that they repented and would donate their wages to affiliated associations to the #TimesUp move.
