Talk about procrastination.Director Martin Scorsese and his production company Sikelia are being sued by Cecchi Gori Pictures for not making a movie he agreed to film 22 years ago.
The suit then alleges Scorsese arranged to postpone the project until after completing 2006’s “The Departed,” 2010’s “Shutter Island,” and 2011’s “Hugo.”
Cecchi Gori, who have produced films such as “Seven” and “A Bronx Tale,” is now suing for unpaid fees on “Hugo” and any other movies made before “Silence.”
The producers want a flat fee of $1.5 million, as well as the value of Scorsese’s producer title on “Hugo” and 20 per cent of his back-end on Oscar-winning “Hugo,” according to TMZ.
Looks like we’re going to be waiting a long time for “Departed 2.”
