Mischa Barton sued for missing shooting
Actress Mischa Barton is facing a lawsuit over allegations she missed the beginning of shooting of "Promoted" because she was on vacation in Europe.
The producers behind the film have filed legal papers accusing the actress of derailing the production by her absence, reports contactmusic.com.
In the documents, they allege Barton missed the March 4 start date and claim they received an email from her mother which suggested the star was in Europe and would not be available until around two weeks after she was due to start work.
They are suing Barton to reclaim the USD 20,000 advance she was paid, as well as USD 200,000 in marketing expenses and an additional USD 100,000 in costs.
