“Negotiation is not just for time and talent during the actual shoot” – Ireti Doyle on film money


In an Instagram post on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, Iretiola Doyle said producers tend to ignore or downplay the fact that film money is in perpetuity.

The 52-years-old ‘Tinsel’ star said talent needs to bear in mind that there is more to just acting a scene when at the negotiation table.

Let us bear in mind that the negotiation is not just for time and talent during the actual shoot, but more importantly, the rights to use one’s name, image and likeness (any which way Sir/Madam Producer decides) AND the right to assign same rights to any third party of their choosing ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, AD- INFINITUM,” she wrote.


On a personal ground, Iretiola read the riot act to producers saying, “Let us be all guided please, and miss me with that “it’s only 2 scenes half-day shoot” bovine manure of an argument. My boobs may be small, but they’ve been there for 52 years. Enough.”
