More Details Released On Interns Suing Fox Searchlight Due To Bad Experience On Black Swan

| Filed under: Film FlickersLegal Matters

Darren Aronofsky Sued

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!

    American kids are embarrassing now days… You're a f-ing intern. No pay! It's called work experience, and something to add onto your resume'… I'm so lucky to have been born in the 60's, and in school in the 70's and 80's… WE WORKED!! AND DIDN'T WHINE!!!!! It's called starting at the bottom and moving your way up…

    Re: cap chick – But as an intern it is illegal to make them do non educational work. If they got coffee and only got coffee then they should have been paid unless their internship was as a personal assistant. Interns are regularly abused in this country, especially in the entertainment business.
