The suit accuses the defendants of intentional misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, conspiracy to defraud, and breach of contract.

The suit states Emmett and his partner agreed to deliver a movie entitled Boss Level by a certain date. Gotham provided a completion bond.

The film in question is a 2020 action flick starring Grillo with Mel Gibson and Naomi Watts. It was released on Hulu in March 2021.

“A completion bond is a guarantee that a film will be completed and delivered on time and on budget and, if the film goes over budget, the guarantor, in this case [Gotham,] is required to pay the overages,” the suit explained.

Gotham said they paid over $3.4 million after the film went over budget. The parties had originally agreed on a $43 million budget, but the defendants blew off that number.

The suit states that Emmett and his team originally had a budget of $47 million but Gotham told them they needed to cut it down to $43 million. The insurance company said they could only obtain financing if the budget was slashed.

Gotham said the producers made false representations with the intent to induce Gotham to issue the completion bond.

“Defendants did not intend to adhere to the Approved Budget and intended to spend sums far in excess of the approved amount, as evidenced by, among other things, the fact that the Film quickly went over budget by approximately $3,400,000, about the same amount Defendants had previously purported to cut from the budget,” the suit reads.

Gotham is suing over alleged false representations made by Emmett and his team. The company is seeking unspecified damages along with punitive damages.
