John Travolta settles “Double” lawsuit

John Travolta and two production companies that traded lawsuits over Donnie Brasco and Roman Polanski’s abandoned The Double settled their cases out of court Tuesday, lawyers told Reuters. Mandalay Entertainment and Liteoffer sued Travolta in 1996, claiming that he breached his contract after agreeing to star in The Double for $17 million. In addition, the companies claim that the film was never made when Travolta walked off the set after his character was rewritten. Travolta counter-sued, claiming Mandalay reneged on a deal for him to star in Donnie Brasco, which ultimately starred Al Pacino and Johnny Depp. Travolta‘s attorney, Richard Posell, said the lawsuits were “settled to everyone’s satisfaction” but declined to discuss specifics.
