Scarlett Johansson → Emma Stone?…Disney’s OTT Released, Hollywood Litigation

ScreenLant, a U.S. film information site, quoted former editor Matt Bloney of Hollywood Reporter on the 30th (local time) as saying, “Emma Stone is considering a lawsuit against Disney over the release of her movie ‘Cruela’.”
“Cruela” received favorable reviews among audiences and critics, but the box office performance is not high. Many people assume that the number of theaters has decreased due to the release of the movie on Disney Plus (Disney’s OTT).”
Previously, the Disney film “Cruela” was released on May 28 and was released on Disney Plus for $29.99 (about KRW 34,500). The Disney films “Black Widow” and “Jungle Cruise,” which were released later, were also released in theaters and Disney Plus in the same way.
Scarlett Johansson was the first to ignite such a move. According to Reuters and other local reports on the 29th, Scarlett Johansson filed a complaint with the Los Angeles High Court last month, claiming Disney violated his contract with him. Scarlett Johansson is reportedly claiming that Disney’s simultaneous release of “Black Widow” in theaters and OTT violated the contract.
Scarlett Johansson’s legal representative said, “At the time of the contract, Scarlett Johansson’s guarantee was agreed to be based on box office performance on the premise that ‘Black Widow’ would only be released in theaters. However, Scarlett Johansson did not respond.”
Scarlett Johansson also added that the OTT release cost about $50 million.
In response, a Disney spokesman said, “This lawsuit is not worth anything.”It is sad and painful that we ignored the terrible and long-term effects of the coronavirus 19 Pandemic,” he said. “Disney has fully complied with the contract, and Scarlett Johansson has already received 20 million dollars (about 23 billion won) from the Disney Plus disclosure, and furthermore, could receive additional compensation,” he said.
Scarlett Johansson’s lawyer criticized Disney again, saying, “Disney is trying to hide behind Corona 19 as an excuse to raise the share price of Disney Plus subscribers and the company.”
As Emma Stone is considering filing a lawsuit after Scarlett Johansson, attention is being paid to whether Disney’s OTT release will spread to other Hollywood actors such as Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
