Thurman Contract Published In Eloise Dispute
UMA THURMAN's contract for new movie ELOISE IN PARIS has been made public in an ongoing legal dispute over the film.
Production on the picture, which also stars Pierce Brosnan and is based on the classic 1950s children's book by Kay Thompson, was due to begin in February (10).
But filming has reportedly been suspended as part of a breach of contract dispute brought by Thurman's Karuna Dream, Inc company.
Details of the litigation have not been made public, but a copy of Thurman's contract has been filed in connection with the lawsuit, and obtained by TheSmokingGun.com.
The paperwork reveals Thurman's $4.5 million (£2.8 million) salary, as well as a list of her demands including first class air travel, luxury dressing room, a minimum "three-bedroom hotel suite" and three cell phones to use for the duration of the production.
The contract states that no other cast member should be given "more favourable dressing facilities" and Thurman should be allowed to purchase costumes and wigs from the movie at a 50 per cent reduction on cost price.
The agreement also includes a clause banning movie bosses from using Thurman's "name or likeness" in merchandising deals for products including "tobacco, weapons, religious items, personal hygiene products, intimate apparel, porn, gambling, pet food and stomach or rectal medications."
