The actress Eva Green is embroiled in a battle with the big wigs. We’re not talking about big wigs as in outdated metal bands still rocking mullets that need to be snipped. We’re talking about big time lawyers, studios and producers in Hollywood. Coincidentally, Hollywood is wood that witches used to “place people under spells”. Chew on that one.
Ms. Eva claims this is due to a failed film project that she was involved with that ultimately “went south”. Let’s see what’s happening.
As per Fortune, A lawyer for Eva Green accused producers of a collapsed film of trying to damage the performer’s reputation by depicting her as a “diva.” Whether or not this is true or false, should be expected – it is Hollywood.
The French film actress, who played Vesper Lynd in James Bond thriller “Casino Royale,” is suing producers for a $1 million fee she says she is owed for “A Patriot.”
Green, 42, was lined up to star in the sci-fi thriller alongside Charles Dance and Helen Hunt, and was also an executive producer on the project, which collapsed in late 2019.
Production company White Lantern Film is fighting the claim and is countersuing, saying Green made “unreasonable demands” and undermined the production. Hearings in the case opened Thursday at the High Court in London.
Green’s lawyer, Edmund Cullen, said the movie had been a “passion project” for Green and she had “bent over backwards to get this done.”
He said Green “loved the script and wanted the film to be made,” but “the financial plan was never going to work.”
