Abigail Breslin, the renowned actress known for her role in "Little Miss Sunshine," recently alleged that her co-star, Aaron Eckhart, behaved aggressively on the set of their forthcoming action-thriller film, "Classified." In a new lawsuit, she detailed her concerns and the impact on the project.
A Troubling Set Experience
Breslin’s filing states that she was so uncomfortable with Eckhart’s behavior that she refused to be alone with him on set. The film revolves around her character, an MI6 analyst who discovers she is the long-lost daughter of a CIA hitman, portrayed by Eckhart. These allegations have raised several concerns and led to legal repercussions.
The production companies, Dream Team Studios and WM Holdings, have taken legal action against Abigail Breslin, accusing her of breach of contract. They claim that Breslin’s allegations, which they consider "specious," have cost the project a significant $80,000. Additionally, the completed film is now facing potential "delivery issues" due to the limited number of scenes in which Breslin and Eckhart appear together.
Breslin’s Fears and Actions
The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles, reveals that Breslin expressed her concerns about the conditions on set earlier this year. She wrote a letter to SAG-AFTRA outlining her fears and addressing Eckhart’s behavior. Her accusations led to production disruptions as she refused to be alone with Eckhart in multiple scenes. The production had to make costly accommodations to meet her demands.
It is unclear whether Abigail Breslin confronted Aaron Eckhart about the alleged abuse before raising concerns with the production team and contacting her guild. The situation remains contentious, with representatives for both actors yet to comment on the matter.
Investigating the Claims
The lawsuit also mentions that an on-set producer, identified as "Mr. Georgiev," conducted an investigation into Breslin’s claims. According to the lawsuit, he found no evidence of aggressive behavior by Eckhart, and the plaintiffs alleged that Breslin’s accusations were "wild, hysterical, and imaginary."
This legal dispute has raised questions about the dynamics on the set of "Classified" and the impact of Breslin’s allegations on the film’s production and future. The industry awaits further developments and official statements from the involved parties.
