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!

Unbelievable. Has nothing changed at all? 😡
The irony is that this seems to be exactly the wrong time for the financier to have made this decision for the reasons given. I want names!
To me, this sounds like buyer’s regret with a sexist rationale pasted over it. I mean, it can’t have been a secret that she was a woman when he made the initial agreement about funding. So why ust say it now?
buyer’s remorse, I mean.
From what she wrote, it seems she thinks this lawyer influenced the financier. Even if there were buyer’s remorse for some other reason, why use a sexist rationale, of all excuses?
I would also ask, even if it were a few sexists rationale, why not come up with a different, less controversial excuse?

what a horrible outcome, especially these days… really hope the news will help her get the remaining funding needed 😦 I too think she should name him.
