Amazon has signed the rights to Woody Allen's next film. The as-yet-untitled romantic comedy will exclusively appear on the firm's Amazon Prime Video streaming service after it's been in cinemas.

Typically for an Allen picture, the film is star-studded. It stars Steve Carell, Jeannie Berlin, Blake Lively and Jesse Eisenberg.

It's not the first time Allen has worked with Amazon. He's making his first ever TV series for the service – it will air later this year, and star Miley Cyrus.

According to Deadline, the deal was worth eight figures (as in tens of millions of dollars), and caused Allen to turn his back on long-time partner studio Sony Pictures Classic.

Amazon has signed up a few other independent filmmakers, including Spike Lee and Jim Jarmusch. Jarmusch's 'Paterson' will launch on the service later this year, and star Adam Driver ('The Force Awakens', 'Girls') in the title role.
