“Twilight” literary scout sues, claims she’s owed more money


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Twilight Saga” films have made billions upon billions of dollars worldwide wince making the leap from page to screen. Now the woman who claims to have “discovered” the literary property as a potential movie franchise wants a bigger slice of the pie.

Nanette Shipley filed a lawsuit filed earlier this week claiming that she worked as a “literary scout” for Maverick Films and helped obtain the rights to two major film properties – “Twilight” and “Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief.” THR reports that Shipley was promised $75,000 for her work in regarding “Twilight,” and $100,000 for “Thief.” To date, she says she only has been paid $20,000, so she wants the balance.

Mark Morgan took over Maverick in 2008, relaunching it as Imprint Entertainment. He helped set up “Twilight” at “Summit” and shipped “Percy Jackson” to Fox, where both properties thrived.

THR reached out to Morgan, but he couldn’t be reached to comment on the pending lawsuit.
