It looks like Taryn Manning is lawyering up!
The Orange is the New Black star is about to endure a legal battle with a filmmaker who dropped her from a movie that has been in development for about eight years!
According to reports, the 36-year-old has filed a lawsuit against Cline Mayo, who has been trying to get her movie Droppers made since 2007!

Manning was supposed to star in the film, and has worked to fund the trailer and create the "look, feel and scenario" of the project!
Despite all that, the actress has been fired and cut from the film, so we get why litigious action was called for. Though, Manning's lawsuit is actually preemptive, as she claims Mayo is about to sue her as well!
We're not sure what exactly went down between the two, but we have a feeling this legal battle isn't gonna be pretty!
