White Lantern and finance company Sherborne Media Finance are defending, counter-suing the actress for “conspiracy, deceit and unlawful interference,” saying she repudiated her contract and undermined the production causing it to collapse to buy out the script and make the movie herself.

Communications between Eva and other individuals, like her agent, Charles Collier, and the film’s writer and director Dan Pringle, were disclosed, in which she admits she was “very direct.”

She called Sherborne “a–eholes” and “sad little people” and describes one of the producers, Jake Seal, as “evil” and “the devil.” She also referred to the crew at production facility Black Hanger Studios as “s-tty peasants.”

“I was not expecting to have my WhatsApp messages exposed in court. It’s already very humiliating,” she said during cross-examination.

She repeatedly described a “chaotic” atmosphere, calling out a lack of crew, stunt training and even empty production offices at Black Hanger, where the film was supposed to shoot.

“It was like an imaginary movie,” she explained.

“I lived through this and I don’t really understand. I’m still confused by this cuckoo situation.”
