Evan Rachel Wood was sued by the producer of 10 Things I Hate About Life with the plaintiff claiming that the actress collected a $300,000 retainer and then bailed out on the project. According to court documents filed on Thursday, the production company 10 Things Films LLC wants more than $30 million from the star, including at least $20 million in lost profits; $500,000 in lost financing costs; $6 million in lost investments; and $5 million in damages, reported E!Online.
A rep for Woods, meanwhile, called the lawsuit “preposterous.” “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.” the rep said.
