Actor Adrien Brody sued “Giallo” producers and he claims $2million damages – for violating his contract and for his right to his own image, so he wants to ban the sealing of the movie on DVD, according to contactmusic.com.
The actor also requires payment of his work of 640,000 dollars and accuses the Italian producers that they had cheated in terms of rights related to profits from the distribution, which amounts to two million dollars, according to Hollywood Reporter.
According to Brody, director Dario Argento agreed to pay him $640,000 even if the film would not have been filmed.
Moreover, the actor complains that only the shooting began he was aware that the production was not properly funded and that his fee was not paid.
He signed a new contract and agreed to be paid later, but he wanted to have absolute rights over his image until he receives the money.
Brody said that he urged producers to stop marketing the film, according to their agreements, but they have not complied with the request.
