James Sammataro, partnerand co-chair of the Pryor
Cashman’s Media + Entertainment Group, spoke toThe
Hollywood Reporter
about settlement news in the recently
publicized suit between actress Scarlett Johansson and
Disney.While terms of the deal were not disclosed, both
parties have released positive statements on the ongoing future of
their relationships and projections for upcoming projects.
According toThe Hollywood Reporter:

Johansson vs. Disney marked the
latest iteration of a profit-participation dispute that is all too
common in Hollywood, with actors fighting studios over their
backend compensation or the definition of “net profit.”
Very few of these battles percolate to the surface; they often come
to a resolution before lawyers get involved, or the actor’s
contract contains an arbitration provision and the whole process

“The exception is when there’s so much money
involved or if there’s a level of acrimony that has reached a
point of no return, and people are going to stand on
principle,” attorney James Sammataro tells

THR. “That statement by Disney confirmed the
latter, but it still is a shocking statement to make – to paint
someone as being insensitive and playing the whole, ‘You’re
so out of touch’ card. You could probably make the same
argument about Disney; ‘Yeah. You’ve been generating
millions, if not billions, during the pandemic.'”
