Allen Slams Hollywood Studios

Nov 29, 2005 | 9:49am EST

Maverick moviemaker Woody Allen is to shoot a third movie in London after blasting Hollywood studios as intrusive and ignorant.

The director, who turns 70 on Thursday, moved away from his native New York locations in 2003 after voicing dissatisfaction with his lack of creative freedom.

He tells Vanity Fair, "I don't feel that (the studios) are qualified to give the input. They wouldn't know a good script from a problem script or how to cast a picture."

And the Oscar-winner has another reason for choosing England over the US for the still untitled movie project next year--he loves the humility of British actors.

Allen says, "The stars don't deem it any kind of comedown to do a three-line part. I'm able to work on a low-budget film there and it doesn't look like a low-budget."
