Dark Knight Director Vs Agents Over Profits
Nolan and his producing partner wife Emma Thomas filed the lawsuit today in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming Nolan's current agency WME is staking a claim on profits from movies that were initially shepherded by his previous agency CAA.
CAA still claims it's still owed money on the same projects -- so there's a massive conflict ... and Nolan's caught square in the middle.
According to the lawsuit, Nolan and his wife are willing to pay the commissions they owe, but they're asking a court to decide who gets the money -- so they don't pay one agency and get sued by the other.
FYI -- Nolan's agent was fired from CAA earlier this year and subsequently signed on with WME. more on this story
