Several A-listers filed objections on Monday to the bankruptcy sale of the Weinstein Co., on the day that bids are due in advance of Friday’s auction.
Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Bill Murray, Julia Roberts, Rachel McAdams, and Stephen King were among those filing limited objections to the sale. Several alleged that they are owed profit participation on various projects, and objected to transferring the rights to those projects without first paying the default amounts. Many of the stars were represented by the same two law firms — Landau Gottfried & Berger in Los Angeles and Cross & Simon in Wilmington, Del.
Quentin Tarantino also filed an extensive objection, alleging he is owed more than $4.5 million from four film projects, and Creative Artists Agency alleged it is owed $300,000 in packaging fees on the TV series “Waco.”
