Eva Green wins High Court case over unpaid $1m fee for unmade film

Claims that Eva Green’s “unreasonable demands” derailed the film were dismissed by the judge.

Former Bond girl Eva Green has won a lawsuit against White Lantern Film, which owed her a $1m fee for a sci-fi film that never got made.

The company had claimed that Green’s “unreasonable demands” derailed the film, but the judge dismissed their counterclaim. Text messages in which Green called a producer a “moron” and another “evil” were revealed during the trial. However, the judge ruled that Green “did not renounce her obligations” under her contract, as White Lantern had claimed, “nor did she commit any repudiatory breaches of it.”

Despite describing Green as a “frustrating and unsatisfactory witness” who was “surprisingly under-prepared for her evidence,” the judge found in her favour. Green released a statement following the judgment, saying her “professional reputation has been upheld.”
