Thursday's Headlines - Frank Miller Lawsuit

Frank Miller's long-time manager Mark Lichtman is suing the cartoonist/filmmaker for "breach of contract", seeking unpaid management fees which could total over $1 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Lichtman filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court in mid-July, alleging that he is contractually owed 10% of Miller's earnings from a partnership that is said to go back to the late 1980s. Lichtman states that he and his company, the Lichtman Goup, managed Miller's various comic book, television, and film deals from that time to August 2014, which would include Sin City, 300, The Spirit, and the various sequels to The Dark Knight Returns.

Licthman alleges that Silenn Thomas, an associate of Miller, began to "exert influence over Miller" in 2006 that defrauded the long-time manager.
