What do you think happened to her in DOTM? I hope she's dead.
I think she got fired from her job as Mikaela and they wont address what happens to her, once your fired you dont exist to companys anymore, even if they mentioned her Im sure they would have to pay her for the name drop, and I cant see that happening.
in the ET special on DOTM Shia labeef talks about how sam is going through a hard break up and is looking for more stability and thats where Rosie's character (carly) comes in- so no mikaela doesn't die - she kicks samto the curb
Pfft, high-maintenance biotch got what she deserved.
wheres the i will wait till movei Comes, if they ever explain it Option
Actually, the actor owns nothing about the character. The only people who would get money for the mention would be the people who created the character (the original writers). However, just a mention is probably not enough to garnish them any royalties.
I think it'll just be broken up. Either A-He's going to come to his senses and think maybe the dumb bint with the spray-on-tan and fake lips isn't what he's looking for, B-she'll just be a total bitch, get bored with him and move on, or C-Sam will miss a payment to her pimp!
according to the SAG a name drop is usually sufficient to warrant a lawsuit for royalties, and considering its her likeness on everything Mikaela related, u do the math
She is in my basement.
Agreed... She was good in the first movie but they should of left her out of ROTF.
So did they have to pay Katie Holmes when Maggie Gyllenhaal used her character's name in The Dark Knight?
Is Sean Connery paid royalties for every new Bond movie?
Was Elizabeth Mitchell paid royalties for every episode of season 6 of Lost she was referred to by name in after leaving the show?
She married Wheelie.
When did Wheelie get some lucky with the humping?
Where on EARTH did you get that information?
She doesn't own the character. She has no rights to it. ZERO. Paramount/Dreamworks owns Mikaela Banes and they can do whatever they want with their property.
BAM! Exactly right!
I mean, I can understand royalties for flashback footage.
But unless the actor actually appears in some form (audio, photo, footage etc.), there's no way in hell a mere reference to the character, which is owned by the production company and can be recast if they like, could demand royalties.
GRRRRR SHE DIED BECAUSE MY MOVIE MUST BE VIOLENT AND MATURE FOR MATURE VIEWERS SUCH AS MYSELF
Voted for breakup.
I dont think any of those examples were breaches of contract, and to be honest I dont know if Megan Fox had a 3 picture deal with them, but if she did wouldnt that cause an issue? Im just saying what if, not trying to get blungened to death for making a comment. I might add that some actors continue to get royalties long after their roles are over, for example William Shatner still gets royalties off all merchandise that directly involves him or the Star trek name, it just comes down to whats put in a contract. I am merely curious on Megan's part what clauses were in there.
I assume he gets royalties for everything that bears his likeness as James T. Kirk.
Does he get royalties for The Next Generation or Deep Space Nine, though?
I highly doubt it includes a clause that says "If your character is referred to by name, it counts as an appearance on your part".
You're not being "bludgeoned to death", but you made a bold statement and we're questioning that. Which is just fair, as far as I'm concerned.
Eloped with Leo.
I wouldnt be surprised since he signed his contract before those were even thought of. I think his was related more to just the name use. I'll see if I can pull up the old con reference.
It will vary from contract to contract, that's true. Hell, Jack Nicholson get's royalties from ALL Batman movies because he asked for that in his contract when he was the Joker.
Shatner may have gotten a similar deal when he signed on to be in the films. It all depends on what that contract was.
If Paramount/Dreamworks had a three picture deal with Megan Fox, what they would have done was bought her out of it. Of course, if she really quit like she says she did, then she would have had to pay them.
Separate names with a comma.
