We have a little more on the Scream rights lawsuit that broke yesterday, and it does appear to be playing out in the media as we suggested. Accordingly, the Weinsteins have responded in kind with a serious dose of snark. Confidence in motion, or hubris in action?
Weinstein attorney Bert Fields said the lawsuit was a “sure loser.”
“Let me say it very plainly. Ms Konrad’s lawsuit is just plain baloney,” he said. “It never should have been filed.”
Fields said Konrad’s deal did require her producing services to be exclusive to the “Scream” production. “The contract says she’s supposed to be exclusive,” Fields said. “If you ignore the contract, what she says makes sense. But that’s why we have contracts.”
