I don’t get what foundation Scarlett has for a lawsuit right here? She was promised a large theatrical launch, and obtained it. I’m certain the presumption was that there wouldn’t be a simultaneous streaming launch, however it was additionally by no means promised. Looks like the contract was adopted. I’m no lawyer although, possibly I’m lacking one thing.
Ethically, I do suppose Disney ought to pay her extra, giving her a lower of the streaming income on this. However that doesn’t imply they’ve too.
Nevertheless, it does look like it’s in Disney’s greatest curiosity to get this settled out of court docket and carried out with. An excessive amount of dangerous press. And possibly that’s what’s happening right here. Her attorneys assume Disney goes to cave after they don’t have too.
