Clairvoyant femme fatale Nicola Six has been living with a dark premonition of her impending death by murder. She begins a tangled love affair with three uniquely different men: one of whom she knows will be her murderer.
Director Mathew Cullen filed a lawsuit against the producers of this film in September 2015, claiming that they engaged in "fraudulent efforts" to revise the movie without his knowledge. The lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court against producers Chris Hanley and Jordan Gertner, as well as Muse Productions and Nicola Six Ltd. In addition to damages, it seeks a declaration that the producers have no right to use Cullen's name to promote the movie without his consent. According to the lawsuit, the producers interjected elements into the movie that "include incendiary imagery evoking 9/11 jumpers edited against pornography, as well as juxtaposing the holiest city in Islam against mind control. No crew or cast member signed up for this, nor did plaintiffs." The lawsuit contends that none of the "revisionary elements" appear in the script. The lawsuit claims that producers breached their agreement by refusing to pay him full compensation, refusing to provide three cuts and three public screenings of the movie, and refusing to produce the movie as a DGA film. It also cites "failure to provide funding needed to properly produce the film." Cullen claims that Hanley gave him assurances that he "would have freedom to make the film without interference from them."
They used to worry about the kind of world they were bringing their child into. But when their prayers were answered, they worried about what kind of child they were bringing into the world.
There's a noticeable difference in the way that Samson Young prints and presents his manuscript at the end, to the dead body of Nicola. The producer's cut establishes a clearer sense with more up-front photography of Samson finishing and printing his work, and then carefully placing it on Nicola's body with the note. The director's cut conveys all of this, but in a more ambiguous way due to the choices in shot selection and pacing.
