Martin Scorsese has been sued for breach of written contract, intentional misrepresentation, and negligent misrepresentation by the production company behind Silence, a film project that Scorsese allegedly promised to direct and co-produce over two decades ago.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by EW, Cecchi Gori Pictures, a production company, claims they entered into an agreement with Scorsese and his production company, Sikelia Productions Inc., in 1990 to direct Silence, based on a Japanese novel, as his next feature-length movie after Kundun (1997). The Cecchi Gori Parties claim they’ve invested over $750,000 in the project.
