London: Filmmaker Woody Allen says he will not adapt any other writer`s work for the big screen because he doesn`t enjoy doing that.

Allen writes and directs his own films and is known for completing at least one movie every year. He is now adamant he would never hire a screenwriter, reports

"I`m essentially a writer. That`s what I do. I like to write and I only direct because I want to get my vision as a writer onto the screen. The fun for me is creating the thing. It would not be fun for me to take someone else`s script and direct it," Allen said.

"I`m a writer who directs things for survival, so I don`t turn it over to someone else and then think, `Oh my god, he`s gotten everything wrong and he`s doing a bad job and they cast the wrong people`," he added.
