Evan Rachel Wood was sued because she dropped out of a movie. She was scheduled to be part of the "10 Things I Hate About You" sequel but she is no longer doing the film. On Friday, NY Daily News shared that after Rachel accepted $300,000 as a retainer for the movie she decided to drop out.
They want a lot from her. Reports are that they are hoping to get so much money because of $20 million in lost profits, $500,000 in lost financing costs, $6 million in lost investment, and $5 million in damages.
Her rep spoke out though saying, "The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers. The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in November 2013, by which time the producers said they would have cleared up their issues."
"However, the producers still could not get their act together, nor did they pay Evan money that was owed. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is Enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract."
At this time, it is unknown if Evan Rachel Wood will be able to get them to come up with an agreement or not. $30 million i s a pretty big low suit.
