A couple of former interns, Alex Footman and Eric Glatt, that were on Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan are filing lawsuits saying the things they did on set (for no money) violated U.S. labor laws.
Fox Searchlight responded that they're not responsible for how they were treated, as that's up Darren's production company:
"These interns were not even retained by Fox Searchlight and, in fact, were working for the production company that made Black Swan well before Fox Searchlight even acquired its rights in the film. These individuals were never employed as interns or retained in any capacity by Fox Searchlight, which has a proud history of supporting and fostering productive internships."
We wonder what they had them doing that was so unusual or bad? What did they have to do that wasn't expected??
Hmm. Some people just aren't cut out for getting coffee!
