Kathy Bates Settles Out Of Court

OSCAR-winning actress KATHY BATES has settled a breach of contract lawsuit against film producer MARTIN BREGMAN.

The MISERY star was seeking at least $1.25 million (GBP787,000) in damages against allegations that Bregman reneged on a deal for her to star in a film tentatively titled of CAROLINA TORN ASUNDER - now known as CAROLINA.

According to the August 2001 lawsuit filed in LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT, Bates had a "pay-or-play" agreement with Bregman and his production company that guaranteed $1.25 million whether or not the flick was made or she was in it.

The ABOUT SCHMIDT star alleges she participated in a week of rehearsals and a week of pre-production but didn't get the role of GRANDMA MIRABEAU - which later went to SHIRLEY MACLAINE.
