The Disney lawsuit saga continues as Scarlett Johansson's agent responds to Disney
By Ray Ampoloquio August 1, 2021
Scarlett Johansson is one of the biggest superstars in the world. She's earned top billings for years.
In fact, she was the highest-paid female lead in the world for two years in a row in 2018 and 2019.
This was a fact that Bryan Lourd made very clear in his response to Disney's accusations following Johansson's earlier lawsuit against the House of Mouse.
According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Lourd claims that the international mass media and entertainment company has "shamelessly and falsely accused Ms. Johansson of being insensitive to the global COVID pandemic"
Lourd also claims that Disney's earlier press statement was an attempt to use her "success as an artist and businesswoman, as if that were something she should be ashamed of."
Lourd's reply is just the latest piece of news in an issue that has piqued the interest of the entire world over the past few days.
The whole thing came to light following the successful premiere of Black Widow.
Recent estimates show that Johansson's potential loss resulting from Black Widow's dual release is somewhere upwards of $50 million.
