Eva Green ‘contemplated faking a broken arm’ to avoid appearing in film, High Court told

Eva Green, a Hollywood actress, “considered faking broken arms” in order to avoid appearing on a later-abandoned scifi movie. The High Court was told.

Green suggested that she pretend she was being treated for a serious rash to avoid performing.

As part of her legal battle against White Lantern Film, further messages from the French actress who appeared in James Bond films Casino Royale and Casino Royale were made public.

After the October 2019 cancellation of A Patriot, the film in which she was to star, the 42-year old is now suing the production company.


She claims she is entitled to the million-dollar (PS810,000), fee for the project, despite it being cancelled under their agreement.

White Lantern Film and SMC Speciality Finance, the lender, are counter-suing Green. They claim that Green undermined the production of the independent film and renounced their contract.

Max Mallin KC for White Lantern stated that Ms Green had displayed a “categorical, unequivocal refusal” to perform.

On Tuesday, Mr Mallin stated that Green was “so worried about what would happen to her if she were called upon to perform.” She had suggested that Charles Collier, Green’s agent, “invent” a story about Green being admitted in one of the messages.

The message that Green sent to the court in September 2019 was: “If they return to you and tell you they are going ahead with the movie, then what can we say …?.”

“Could this be said that I have been ill for the past weekend?” “I had a severe rash all over my body and had to go to the hospital.”

Green asked her agent if she could help. The court was informed.

Mr Mallin stated that Green had also “appeared willing to consider faking broken arms” in written submissions to avoid performing.

Green was not able to decide if she was set. The barrister stated that it was up to Green to respond to the call. My submissions show that she made it clear that she wasn’t.

He said that Green would not have been asked to star in the film if she was.

In written submissions, Mr Mallin stated that Ms Green’s evidence was “unconvincing” and sometimes appeared to have been rehearsed.

Green actress Edmund Cullen KC said she was subject to a “character assassination” and that it was “based upon some of the most nastiest stereotypes.”

He stated that the actress was described as being demanding and outgoing.

Mr Cullen stated that these lies were very harmful and should be stopped.

Later, the barrister stated that White Lantern was “vomiting” allegations against Ms Green that she had violated her contract. None of these were true.

He said, “Ms Green was overwhelmingly eager to provide her acting services for White Lantern in this film.”

Mr Cullen stated that Green had not renounced the contract, and that witnesses for White Lantern’s lender and White Lantern “came to deceive” the court.

In written arguments, he stated that “The highest it goes is that Ms Green admitted that working with Mr Seal [executive producer] would be impossible.”

“But, it is far from a statement that the contract will not be performed.”

Green was not given an opportunity to perform, and she was not called upon.

Court was told previously that actress Had described potential crew members “s ****y workers”, and the production as “B-s ****y movie” and Jake Seal as “pure vomit”.

Further messages claim that Green also described Seal as a “sociopath”, and “a mad dictator who wants proof he is right” in further messages.

Mr Justice Michael Green will issue his written decision at a later time.
