Adrien Brody Is Suing Mad, Not Paid For Film!

| Filed under: Legal Matters

adrian brody suing producers of giallo

Yikes! We totally get it!

Adrien Brody is suing the filmmakers of Italian horror Giallo because he was not paid for his work.

The film, which was directed by Dario Argento, is about a detective (played by Brody) who is helping a woman find her sister, who has been kidnapped by a serial killer. After a week into production, producers still owed Brody $640,000, but signed the actor to a new agreement where he would finish the film if given the "absolute right to withhold consent to the use of his likeness” until he was paid.

And he's doing just that!

Brody is seeking a permanent injunction against the release of the film, as well as damages for breach of contract, breach of fair dealing, fraud and misappropriation of his publicity rights.

    Saw this at Frightfest in the UK last summer - was hilariously shite! he should forget about the money and just try to prevent its release to save embarrassment! Love Argento normally but the movie was utter gash!!

    I unfortunately saw it too, and it was horrible. This is probably a good thing for him.

    Talk to his agents. When actors make a deal it isn't promissory note. The producers have to put the money into a bank account.

    I think Adrien Brody is sooooo hot! I just don't really like his big nose, lol. Every time I watch one of his movies, I can't really focus cause I'm always focusing on his nose haha. He's still cute though lol
