Nick Cassavetes Sues New Line Over "Peaceable Kingdom" Directing Job

Nick Cassavetes ("The Notebook," "My Sister's Keeper,") is suing New Line Cinema for breach of contract, alleging it failed to hire him to direct the new film "Peaceable Kingdom."

Hence, the lawsuit. Read more here in an article from The Hollywood Reporter.
