    Controversy

    The City of Your Final Destination The City of Your Final Destination Anthony Hopkins new movie

    In early 2007, Anthony Hopkins claimed he had yet to be paid for his work on the film, and that Merchant Ivory had short-changed the cast and crew. Merchant Ivory counter-argued that Hopkins' payment terms had, in fact, recently been renegotiated higher. Later in the year, the actor filed court papers to take the company to an arbitrator. In October 2007, Hopkins filed a lawsuit against Merchant Ivory for payment of his salary of $750,000.

    In 2008, actress and singer Susan (Suzy) Malick also filed suit against Merchant Ivory and James Ivory for producer credit and half a million dollars in an unpaid loan, used when the film was threatened to be shut down due to lack of funding. In 2012 Malick moved for trial by jury and the suit was finally settled out of court.
