Lucifer’s face to change? Know all behind the camera gossip!
Netflix’s popular drama “Lucifer” is in danger over the potential dispute regarding Tom Eliis contract. Hell turns real off-camera on the sets of Lucifer as there arises a contract dispute including the lead star. Sources close to Warner Bros. Television and actor Tom Ellis have informed that the later has rejected the studio’s latest offer. Although, earlier this year, the actor confirmed the deal and hence him backing out now would put him in breach of contract.
What’s the take of studios on the deal?
The series created a lot of talk in the business with the latest season, and it was a huge hit. With all the fans going gaga over the series and the lead, no production network would want it to go another way. As per the sources, Warner Bros. TV has “stretched their arm” towards Tom multiple times. “Everyone wants Tom to be happy. But there’s a limit, and it’s been reached,” words from the authorities. However there is no official word from Netflix, Warner Bros or the actor.
Netflix put forward the idea in February for extending the evil-struck drama even though the fifth season would be the final season.
