Legendary Pictures and the three producers who were dumped from the Godzilla movie project came to a settlement.
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Just weeks before a trial was scheduled to begin, Legendary Pictures has settled a lawsuit with three producers who were dumped from Godzilla.
On Thursday, the parties filed papers to end the legal dispute, which began in January 2013 when the studio preemptively filed claims against Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison, aiming to get a declaration that under the terms of a contract, the studio was only required to use the three on Godzilla if they were "deemed to be engaged" to produce the film. Within days, the producers had filed counterclaims against Legendary for allegedly breaching an oral agreement and demanded "substantial punitive damages to make an example of Legendary so that it and no other studio will in the future treat their producers in this outrageous manner."Godzilla was released in 2014 and became a worldwide hit, grossing over $500 million.
