Hollywood Actress Sued for Quitting a Movie During Production


Hollywood Actress, Sued for Quitting a During Production

Nearly after a year and a half after Evan Rachel Wood allegedly backed out of 10 Things I Hate About Lifethe producers are suing the actress for more than $30 million.

10 Things Film LLC filed a breach of written agreement and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing complaint in LA Superior Court against Wood and her company, according to Deadline.

“Plaintiff has suffered significant and extensive damages and financial harm, including, but not limited to, the loss of, at a minimum, $6,000,000.00 in investments, costs and related expenses in the Picture financing costs and expenses in the amount of, at a minimum, $500,000.00, profits in the amount of, at a minimum, $20,000,000.00 and additional general and special damages in the amount of $5,000,000.00,” said the producers in their 10-page complaint (read it here).

Hours after the producers filed the lawsuit, Evan Rachel Wood reps responded calling the lawsuit “preposterous”. Evan Rachel Wood claimed that the movie was never made because they ran out of and not because Wood left the movie. Here's the full response:

“The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers. The production shut down in February when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 2013 by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues. However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract.”

10 Things I hate About Life” centers on a couple who meet while each is attempting to commit . Filming started on January 14 and after four weeks of , the production was shut down. Filming was to begin again on February 8, 2013. At that point in time, the actress said she will be unable to start filming until November 2013. After talks, Wood said she no longer wanted to do the movie.
