The movie, which was shot in 2017 and had its release cancelled after Amazon terminated its partnership with the embattled director in 2018, is now set to open the Deauville American Film Festival in France on Sept. 6, The Guardian reports.

The premiere comes ahead of the film’s theatrical release in France, currently set for Sept. 18.

“A Rainy Day in New York” stars Timothée Chalamet and Selena Gomez, who have both expressed regret for working with Allen on the film.

Amazon cited comments made by Allen about the #MeToo movement as the reason for cancelling their contract with the director. Earlier this year, he launched a $68 million lawsuit against the company.

Allen has been accused by his daughter Dylan Farrow of molesting her as a child and he has repeatedly denied the allegations.

France isn’t the first country to get to see the film, though. “A Rainy Day in New York” was released in Poland earlier this summer.
