UPDATED: Century City boutique agency SDB Partners’ lawsuit against former client Chris Pine over commissions has been settled. I hear the two sides reached an agreement late last week, with the paperwork being filed at the court this week. Neither party is commenting but I hear that SDB, which had been seeking to get commission on about $10 million in past and future earnings by Pine, will land 10% on about $8 million. Pine dismissed SDB via email in November after nine years. In the February lawsuit, which provided a glimpse at Pine’s movie salaries in the past several years, SDB claimed Pine owes the agency commissions on projects including This Means War and his continuing role as Captain Kirk in Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek franchise. SDB’s lawsuit was filed by Bryan Freedman and Jesse Kaplan of L.A.’s Freedman & Taitelman.
