Adrien Brody Suing to Stop "Giallo" Release

Posted: October 19th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Adrien Brody Suing to Stop "Giallo" ReleaseSubmit Comment
Adrien Brody is suing for $3 million in an attempt to stop his Italian horror film "Giallo" from being released, even though it's scheduled to appear in stores today (October 19th).

The reason for the lawsuit is not because the film was ripped up by critics or never got a theatrical release in th US, but because Brody alleges that producers lied to him in order to stop him from walking off the set during filming.

The actor signed a "pay or play" deal to star in the movie, which means that he gets paid if even "Giallo" never gets made. A week into production, Brody discovered that the movie was underfunded and the producers had failed to put $640,000 into an escrow account.

Feeling cheated, Brody was ready to walk away, but was told that the film had new guaranteed funding lined up from a $2 million sale of Italian distribution rights. He was then asked to sign a new contract which states that he would temporarily defer his payment in exchange for having the "absolute right to withhold consent to the use of his likeness in the Picture" until he was paid in full.

Since he was never paid and the story of the new funding was a lie, Brody tried to exercise his rights by not allowing the movie to be released. Producers allegedly ignored him after telling him that he will never be paid.

Oh yes, Brody will be paid, and he will be paid well.

there IS a lesson to be learned here...ALWAYS read a contract BEFORE signing it...case closed

Not his fault. They broke contract; he'll sue; he'll win. I don't see any losses here. Other than the fact that this movie, along with Adrien Brody himself, exist.
