Woody Allen's new movie project, called "A Rainy Day in New York," reportedly contains scenes of pedophilia – a fact that's extra controversial, considering the sexual allegations made against the director in the past.

According to reports, part of the film will tell the story of a "middle-aged man who is sleeping with a much younger woman, among other actresses." Supposedly, this younger woman will be 15 years old in the film. The legal age of consent throughout the US is between 16 to 18. The middle-aged man will be played by Jude Law, and the teenager, Elle Fanning.

In the early '90s, Allen's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of sexually assaulting her, though a trial found no conclusive evidence on the incident.

Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Hall, Diego Luna, and Selena Gomez are also confirmed actors, according to the movie's IMDB page.

Aside from Allen's past, the nature of the movie is also especially controversial considering recent allegations against movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Many actors and actresses have taken a stand against sexual assault by backing out of movie deals with directors, producers, and companies that are complicit in sexual assault or harassment. The stars in Allen's movie, including Gomez, have unfortunately not done the same.

Gomez's character in the movie has not yet been revealed, but the star is clearly working very closely with the director.

By the looks of it, the 25-year-old has a romantic scene with Chalamet:

One report explains the director and Gomez had never met prior to working together.

"I knew Selena from a distance, but I had never met her," he explained. "We cast according to who we think is perfect for the role... Selena had it all. I felt that I was very lucky to get her."

Despite Allen's excitement to have her on board, fans are calling the star out for joining the movie – and even suggesting she drop the project altogether.

Some fans are especially angry with the actress, as she's just come off producing "13 Reasons Why," which featured stories of empowerment after assault.

As of now, the film does not have a definite release date. Gomez has yet to respond to the backlash.
