Eva Green, the actress, is currently embroiled in a court case that could prove to last a very very long time. As many of you may or may not be aware, Ms. Green starred in one of the more terrible James Bond films of modern times, and it seems there is some muck being thrown around considering said movie. Let’s find out the latest…
As per Indie Wire, Eva Green is reflecting on her leaked text messages amid the “A Patriot” lawsuit.
Green was set to star in and executive produce a shelved action film titled, “A Patriot” before suing White Lantern Films and SMC Speciality Finance film financiers for her $1 million salary. The “A Patriot” producers countersued Green for breach of contract, claiming that she never intended to star in the film in the first place. This could be true. Agents in Hollywood are unscrupulous. Who knows if they dropped the ball and caused the mess in the first place.
During court proceedings, the “Casino Royale” alum stated that she refused to appear in a potentially career-threatening “B-movie” like “A Patriot” once funding was slashed after she signed on. Attorneys for White Lantern rebutted Green’s claims and argued she never wanted the film to move forward, revealing WhatsApp messages allegedly sent by Green calling producer Jake Seal “pure vomit” and a “fucking moron” who should be fired, and describing other producers as “evil” and “arseholes.” Green additionally is said to have called proposed crew members “shitty peasants.”
