Evan Rachel Wood's Rep Slams $30 Million Lawsuit as 'Preposterous'

Evan Rachel Wood is being sued by the producers of the film 10 Things I Hate About Life for $30 million for allegedly backing out of the project and now her reps are slamming the lawsuit.

The 26-year-old actress was paid $300,000 upfront for the film back in November 2012 and then on January 14, after four weeks of shooting, production was abruptly shut down.

“The lawsuit is preposterous and simply a bullying tactic from financially troubled producers,” her rep told Deadline. “The production shut down in February 2013 when the producers ran out of money. Even after that, Evan agreed to resume production in Nov. 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. Repeated subsequent promises by the producers to resume production and pay Evan also turned out to be false. Enough is enough. The producers, not Evan, have breached contract.”
