Exorcist (2010) – Warner Brothers (film) (settled in 2012)

Author of the book Exorcist, William Peter Blatty, filed a lawsuit against Warner on September 3, 2010 regarding Warner prohibiting him from reviewing the film’s accounting and receiving owed profits. Blatty’s complaint included claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, accounting, and breach of implied covenant of good faith and dealing. In February 2012, the parties reached a settlement for an undisclosed amount.
