WTF! Julie Delpy claims 20% financier dropped out solely because she’s a woman directing.
“Women directors are emotional, women are unreliable,” Delpy told The Hollywood Reporter. “They told me that to my face in a meeting! They made their decision [to pull money from the film] on nothing except the fact I was a woman.”
Ms. Delpy claims that the advice to pull financing came from some American Lawyer.
This hiccup ( if it’s just that) seems like it may push the filming back, and who knows what havoc that will wreak on Richard Armitage’s schedule.
Julie Delpy, NAME THAT LAWYER!
