Allen Awarded Legal Fees in Editing Fight

14 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Veteran director Woody Allen has been awarded $95,000 in legal fees by a New York City judge in his court battle with former producer Jean Doumanian over the editing of his films for television and airplanes. Allen filed suit against Doumanian, her partner Jacqui Safra and their production company Sweetland Films five years ago, accusing them of cheating him out of $12 million in profits after refusing to give him an earnings report for eight movies. Despite reaching a settlement in 2002, the case was brought back to the Supreme Court in May after a provision from the agreement stipulated if the parties disagreed over the editing for television, the matter would be resolved by a judge. Doumanian was responsible for editing Bullets Over Broadway, Mighty Aphrodite, Everyone Says I Love You, Deconstructing Harry, Celebrity and Sweet And Lowdown for television and in-flight movies. Justice Bernard Fried agreed that under the terms of the settlement Doumanian had the right to edit offensive words with substitute words, instead of bleeping them out as Allen would wish. But State Supreme Court Justice Bernard Fried ruled on Thursday that Doumanian should cover Allen's costs. »

Mol Struggled with Hype

7 August 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Gretchen Mol wishes she had never been hyped up in Hollywood in the 1990s, because she became a laughing stock when her career flopped. In 1998, the star of Rounders and Woody Allen's Celebrity was tipped for major stardom, especially after glossy magazine Vanity Fair featured her on the front page - but she then ironically found acting jobs became scarcer than ever. She says, "I can't really keep up with what the perception of it is now; I've lost the plot. I know how it felt in the moment, which was, 'Oh-oh, that was bad, it was wrong, it didn't work and now it's harder to get jobs.' But then I think, 'Well, it was always hard to get jobs, and I've never had a career where one thing came after another. And it still doesn't, even now.' I've certainly spent time thinking about it and analyzing it, to the point where it feels like it happened to somebody else. It was just the timing, really. It was just funny that the magazine would have so much impact." »
