Producer says he’s paid crew of movie shot in Philadelphia

September 19, 2018

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The producer of a movie shot in Philadelphia over the summer says the crew members have been paid.

A crewmember filed a lawsuit Monday against Suza-Mark Productions of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, and producer Mark V. Wiley, saying none of the 53-member crew had been paid for two weeks’ worth of work on the movie “Made in Chinatown” featuring cast members from “The Sopranos.”

Wiley says that as of Wednesday the crew had been paid. Wiley says the lawsuit’s allegation that he said he would pay the crew when he sold the film are false. He says the film’s final investors pulled out without notice, leaving him to find more funding.

A lawyer for the crew says they have not received confirmation of payment and the lawsuit is moving forward.
