LONDON (AP) – Eva Green was awarded $1 million by a British court Friday in her dispute over the collapse of a project she feared would become a “B movie” that could ruin her career. .
A High Court judge has ruled in favor of the French actor in his lawsuit against the makers of “A Patriot”, a sci-fi thriller that collapsed in 2019.
England-based film production company White Lantern Film portrayed Greene as a diva during a January trial, which made “extremely creative and financial demands” and torpedoed the production.
Justice Michael Green ruled that the actor was entitled to his £810,000 fee and dismissed the counterclaim.
“Ms. Green did not abdicate her obligations under the artist agreement; nor did she commit any reprehensible breach of it,” the judge said.
Green, 42, who played Vesper Lynd in the 2006 version of the James Bond thriller “Casino Royale”, said she “fell in love” with the script of “A Patriot” and its environmental message but felt that corners had been cut. They became concerned because of this and production moved from Ireland to England.
“When an actor appears in a B movie, they are labeled as a B actor, you are never offered quality work,” she testified.
