Black Swan Gets Involved in Lawsuit

Perhaps hoping to bring a little bit of the behind-the-scenes nonsense The Hurt Locker gifted the awards circuit with last year, New York–based production company Overnight LLC, led by one of Black Swan's executive producers, is suing the company's former president, Aaron Kaufman. The suit claims that "'gross lapses in judgment' cost the company millions of dollars in lost revenue and a producer credit on the movie Black Swan" and that Kaufman misrepresented "his skill and experience and pretend[ed] 'to be knowledgeable about the financing of motion pictures when he was not.'" Just so long as no one starts sending crazy e-mails, Black Swan should be able to ride this one out. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
