Age…and cancellation catch up with Woody Allen — “retiring” at 86

His movies aren’t even distributed in the US, not in ways most of the country hears about or sees.

He lost his fastball years ago and his breaking stuff hasn’t gotten by of late.

And then there’s the whole matter of the child molestation allegations that will have a prominent place in Woody Allen’s obituary.

Now, in Spain, he’s announced that his next planned film, “Wasp 22,” will be his last.

And just a little while ago, he tried to walk this “end with my 50th film” declaration back. He needs to get a hint. I’ll be shocked if he actually gets this one done.

Eighty-six is a little late getting the memo, Wood man. “Writing,” will be your focus now? No doubt there are still publishers who will put out whatever you write. As to whether anyone will read it…
