'Dieter' Conflict Settled

Posted on

After months of lawsuits and countersuits, the conflict over Mike Myers and the planned “Dieter” film for Universal Studios appears to be settled. Details of the settlement agreement were not disclosed but a statement released by all parties involved — Myers, Universal, and Imagine Entertainment — indicates that they are satisfied with the deal. In June, Universal sued Myers for breach of contract after he pulled the plug on the planned movie “Dieter,” based on a sketch he popularized on “Saturday Night Live.” At the time Myers claimed the script was not acceptable, which was disputed by the film’s producers, Imagine Entertainment’s Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. “Dieter” will be dropped but Myers has agreed to work on another film. “I’m glad to put all of this behind me and I’m looking forward to doing a movie that we can all be proud of,” said Myers.
