UTA: Snipes owes millions

UTA, jilted by Wesley Snipes in February, is suing the actor for back commissions on “Blade: Trinity” and other films.

In a suit filed Monday in California Superior Court in Los Angeles, attorneys for UTA say Snipes has been paid at least $13 million for his work on the action sequel and paid commissions to UTA totaling about $717,000. But UTA claims that Snipes still owes “Blade: Trinity” commissions totaling about $584,000, and it also seeks additional commissions totaling more than $2 million related to its 10% representation fee on the movies “Chaos,” “Middle Man” and “The Shooter.”

A spokesman for UTA declined further comment on the suit, which was filed by the Los Angeles law firm Freedman & Taitelman.

Snipes is represented by manager David Schiff, who was not immediately available for comment.
