Producers of 'Classified' are suing Breslin for not signing contracts to ultimately release the action-packed thriller.

Producers of the film have taken legal action against Breslin for not signing contracts to ultimately release the action-packed thriller after conducting their own investigation into her allegations, which they found "no evidence in support to Breslin's wild, hysterical, and imaginary" claims against the Dark Knight star.

Dream Team Studio and WM Holdings detailed what has been transpiring behind the scenes after filming wrapped in May. The film's plot centers around an international espionage that coincides with a father-daughter story. Eckhart plays a veteran CIA hitman while Breslin portrays his long-lost daughter.

"In order for the production to continue, among other things. Breslin refused to be alone in several scenes with Eckhart and costly accommodations had to be made by the production to accommodate Breslin's demands or else Breslin would not continue to perform her contractual obligations," the production team explained in the lawsuit.

Breslin made it clear she was not going to put up with Eckhart, reportedly firing off a letter to SAG-AFTRA describing her "fears" and "blasting Mr. Eckhart's behavior."

While preparing the costs for the principal photography, producers said they made "unnecessary accommodations made for Breslin, whose claims were specious, cost the production over $80,000."
