Netflix Sued Over Axing Of ‘Rebel Moon’ Video Game Contract

Netflix has been hit with a lawsuit for axing a game development contract based on Zack Snyder‘s widely anticipated Rebel Moon franchise

In a filing today in federal court, Evil Genius Games claims it was working hand-in-hand with the streamer to put together a tabletop role-playing game that was intended to be released in conjunction with the first Rebel Moon film, set for a Christmas release.

Then, after months of nothing but positive collaboration, it all came crashing down.

“Nevertheless, just weeks after the work was finalized and turned over to Netflix, Netflix did a complete about face, and accused Plaintiff of breaching the Agreement’s confidentiality provisions—’and Netflix’s trust’—by allegedly releasing confidential Rebel Moon content at a trade show and then disclosing unapproved artwork for the Rebel Moon game to retailers,” the filing says of the suddenly terminated a licensing deal in May this year (read the Evil Genius lawsuit against Netflix here).

Evil Genius insists they had permission from the streamer in March to show some artwork at this year’s Game Manufacturers Association Exposition to “create some industry buzz” about the project. The plaintiffs emphasis that two Netflix staffers even helped distribute the materials to retailers at the show.

The breach of contract from LA’s Kibler, Fowler & Cave LLC seeks unspecified damages. While mentioned in the document, Zack Snyder is not named as a defendant in the complaint.

Netflix has not responded to request for comment on the suit. If and when the streamer does we will update this post.

Before everything went south on this arrangement, Evil Genius claims it did its job and delivered a 228-page World Bible that expanded on Snyder’s vision for the Rebel Moon universe. The company also asserts they handed over a 430-page Player’s Guide, and a 337-page Game Master’s Guide.

That all occurred even though the initial script for Snyder’s film was “missing background information vital to the story as a whole and to the world,” the lawsuit states. To fill that void, Evil Genius says it suppled “all the missing pieces,” along with “a cohesive backstory for the entire Rebel Moon franchise.”

“It became clear’’ the lawsuit alleges, “that Netflix was simply using the alleged breach and termination to hijack [Evil Genius’] intellectual property and prevent [Evil Genius] from releasing the game.’’

David Scott, Evil Genius’ CEO said in as statement today the decision to file a lawsuit was not made lightly.

“Our aim is to ensure our team is recognized for their fantastic work, and that we can release this game for millions of TTRPG enthusiasts to enjoy,’’ Scott said. “It’s disheartening to see Netflix backpedal on content that was jointly showcased and had received their prior consent. We urge our supporters to contact Netflix and Zack Snyder to push for the release of this game.’’

Suspension of SNP rebel Fergus Ewing is ‘proportionate’, says minister

Suspending rebel SNP MSP Fergus Ewing from the party’s parliamentary group at Holyrood for a week is proportionate, a senior member of the Scottish government has said.

Net zero secretary Mairi McAllan backed the proposed seven-day suspension of the former rural affairs secretary, who has been a vocal critic of Humza Yousaf’s government in recent months.

The suspension – which Mr Ewing has two weeks to appeal against – was approved after he voted with the opposition at Holyrood in a vote of no confidence against Scottish Green co-leader and government minister Lorna Slater amid the controversy surrounding the deposit return scheme.

Mr Ewing has also spoken out against the Scottish government on issues such as the new licensing regime for short-term rental properties as well as the stalled deposit return scheme.

He has also traded barbs with the Scottish Greens in recent months, describing the party as “wine bar revolutionaries” and “hard-left extremists”, as well as calling the atmosphere within the SNP group “toxic”.

The Inverness and Nairn MSP – son of the late SNP trailblazer Winnie Ewing – said: “The SNP is not an ordinary party – we are a party that has always put Scotland first, and that means to me, putting the interests of the people of Scotland first.

“But in good conscience, and it grieves me to say this, I don’t believe that is any longer the case.”

A meeting of SNP MSPs at Holyrood on Wednesday night resulted in a vote of 48 to nine in favour of Mr Ewing’s suspension.

Net zero and just transition secretary Mairi McAllan

But speaking on BBC Radio Scotland on Thursday, Ms McAllan said there is still room for free thinkers within the SNP.

Asked if she had voted in favour of his suspension, she said: “In full transparency, yes I did.

“It is something I certainly would expect to be the outcome if I had done what Fergus did.

“It is part of a normal party mechanism in a democratic system.”

Asked whether politicians can express their opinions within the SNP, Ms McAllan added: “Of course, I like to think of myself as a free thinker.

“In particular the first minister has been quite clear he wants people to come to him and to speak to him internally if they have any concerns they wish to raise, he has an open door in that regard.

“But Fergus is a longstanding MSP, he has been a minister, he understands the procedures here and what the outcome is of voting the way he did.”

SNP MP Joanna Cherry claimed his rebellion was “the product of years of inadequate debate in our party about policy making”.

In a statement posted on social media, Ms Cherry – who has criticised the Scottish government’s policy on gender recognition reform – said: “I may not agree with Fergus Ewing on everything but he is a man of integrity.

“I’m glad there were rebels on this vote. His rebellion is the product of years of inadequate debate in our party about policy making. That needs to change. Don’t shoot the messenger.”

Ms McAllan made it clear she does not agree with Ms Cherry’s comments, adding that suspending Mr Ewing was “a proportionate response to a serious breach of party standing orders which was voted on by majority, overwhelming majority, by the group in Holyrood”.

Mr Ewing was flanked by his sister and fellow SNP MSP Annabelle Ewing, former party leadership contender Kate Forbes, MSP Christine Grahame, and his lawyer John Campbell KC.

Asked how he would conduct himself in the future, Mr Ewing said: “I choose to defend my constituents’ interests and let the cards fall where they may.”

LIV rebel Brooks Koepka arrives in Rome separately to rest of US team

Everyone can afford to be courteous on the Monday of Ryder Cup week. The two team captains, Luke Donald and Zach Johnson, were all charm and laughter at their opening press conference, but part of the fun of it is knowing that only one will be Sunday evening. You could pick up hints of the storylines that will shape the week of whichever of them loses in the questions about the captain’s picks, the pairings, the order of play, and, in particular, all the talk about players from the LIV tour who aren’t here this year.

Brooks Koepka is the only one who made it on either side, and it turns out he flew to Rome alone, while the rest of the US team travelled together. “Given time constraints and, I don’t know, the slots for taking off and landing, time-wise, it seemed it was best that Brooks meet us here,” Zach Johnson said. “But for him to fly from Chicago to Atlanta and for us to wait for him and go, we would have got in a lot later. I don’t think it was even feasible. So he met us here.” Odd thing was, Koepka got here before the rest of them.

Koepka was coming from the LIV event in Chicago, where he finished tied 24th, eight shots back from the winner, Bryson DeChambeau. It was DeChambeau’s second win in the last three LIV events, and he spoke afterwards about how hurt he was that Johnson hadn’t even made the effort to speak to him about selection. “It would have been nice to at least just have a call,” DeChambeau said, “There’s numerous people that I think Zach should have called out here, and we didn’t get that. It definitely does sting a little bit.”

Koepka, of course, has major form this season. He finished T2 in the Masters earlier this year, and won the PGA Championship. But that isn’t the only difference between them. DeChambeau also signed up to the antitrust suit against the PGA tour, Koepka never did. Johnson insisted that had nothing to do with it. “We have a points system within The PGA of America, within the Ryder Cup USA. It’s pretty evident how you garner points and which tournaments you can accumulate points in,” he explained. “It was the top 25 guys in that point system that had my full attention.”

Donald had his own version of this. John Rahm recently spoke about how disappointed he was that Sergio García wasn’t involved this week, and said it would be “stupid” not to use him. “Obviously we know the situation with Sergio,” Donald said. “He resigned his situation five months ago, and once that happened he was ineligible. I know there were some stories about him trying to pay off some fines and stuff. But we know what the DP World Tour rules are, and once you resign, you can’t reapply for membership until the following year.”

At least one of them can expect to have to answer the question about whether they’ve any regrets about it all over again come Sunday.

The Freedom Caucus rebel who’s pals with Liz Cheney — and opposes impeachment

While Buck and McCarthy once had a stronger relationship, the Coloradan dropped hints during January’s chaotic speakership election that he’d entertain other candidates if the vote dragged on. He ultimately stuck with McCarthy.

Asked after the Tusk Club meeting if he respects McCarthy, Buck took a noticeable pause.

He said the speaker has “done more with his talent than anybody I’ve ever seen.” Asked the question again, he answered: “I respect all the things he’s done.”

That somewhat faint praise comes as Buck faults McCarthy’s handling of the two biggest issues in Washington right now: the House GOP’s impeachment inquiry, which he dismissed in his op-ed as “a flimsy excuse,” and spending talks.

Buck is also annoyed with the speaker’s lack of movement on ideas to rein in spending, like assigning subcommittees to work on rooting out government waste — which could make him more of a threat to the speaker.

“Here’s the problem: He said spending was his number one priority when he was elected speaker. And then he didn’t institute any of the things that I’m talking about.”

Buck added that McCarthy can’t gain back his confidence on the matter because the speaker’s camp doesn’t “take it seriously,” lamenting that “their goal is to stay in power.”

Colleagues who know Buck well aren’t surprised to see him all but laugh off the blowback he’s getting, from public attacks by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to whispers about a primary challenge.

Sen. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), a friend since their days as law school classmates, described his ideology as “a very different brand of conservatism that is typical of the intermountain West,” if not typically reflected in the party’s base.

Take his dogged refusal to object to Biden’s win. Lummis recalled running into a fired-up Buck at the Denver airport, both of them headed to Washington for the election certification votes on Jan. 6, 2021.

Rajasthan BJP’s new rebel: Bent on fighting polls, 85-yr-old MLA slams minister Shekhawat for age barb

New Delhi: Six-time BJP MLA Suryakanta Vyas is now the latest ‘rebel’ veteran in Rajasthan to take on the party brass over poll tickets, as she reminded Union minister Gajendra Shekhawat of observing propriety given her decades-long stint in politics.

Vyas, 85, has announced that she would be contesting the Rajasthan election, notwithstanding the party’s unwritten rule about the retirement of veteran legislators.

“I will fight the election despite what Shekhawat is saying. I have been in politics even before Shekhawat was born. Even C.P. Joshi and Rajendra Rathore touch my feet. He should learn manners first,” she said Sunday.

At the root of this sharp reaction was Shekhawat’s statement during the BJP Parivartan Yatra in Nagaur last week where he mentioned about the advanced years of Vyas and Kailash Meghwal.

“(Hindi author) Munshi Premchand has written in one of his stories that old age is often a repetition of childhood and such mistakes are made in childhood,” the Union minister reportedly told the media.

Earlier, the BJP had suspended Meghwal, a former legislative assembly speaker and ex-cabinet minister, from its primary membership for his criticism of the BJP’s Rajasthan election strategy.

Not taking Shekhawat’s remarks lying down, Vyas announced Sunday that she would try her luck at the hustings. “It’s Shekhawat’s Sanskar (manners) which is reflected in his words. I gave more years to the party than Shekhawat’s entire political career. As far as the poll ticket is concerned, I am active and I will fight the election to win,” she asserted.

Affectionately known as ‘Jiji’, Vyas represents Jodhpur’s Soorsagar constituency in the Rajasthan assembly. She has won thrice from Jodhpur city and as many times from Soorsagar.

“I entered into politics in 1952 at the age of 14 when Bhairon Singh Shekhawat was there. I have worked with all leaders of the party from Sunder Singh Bhandari to Vasundhara Raje. All have given me respect. Shekhawat is like my son, but when a son speaks against his mother like this, I feel hurt… He is a Union minister; if he thinks it suits him, then it’s fine,” Vyas told ThePrint.

Her friction with the party brass seemingly began after she lavishly praised Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot for sanctioning Rs 4.75 crore for the renovation of a temple of Pushkarna community in Jodhpur city.

Vyas, a leader of Pushkarna community, had met Gehlot 12 September and compared him with “kings and emperors” for his largesse.

She told ThePrint that she had requested the CM to sanction funds for development of tourist facilities at the shrine.

“Tourists arrive from far and wide. There is no such facility for them. Within two days, the chief minister sanctioned the funds. This has been welcomed by the people in Jodhpur. I have a good relationship with the chief minister. What is the harm if he respects me? We have an old relationship with his family,” Vyas asserted.

Her generous praise was seemingly not to the BJP leadership’s liking as the opposition party is going all out against Gehlot to brand him as an inefficient chief minister who hasn’t been able to control corruption and crime against women.

The resentment of Vyas and Meghwal is being construed as a reflection of discontent within the BJP state unit, especially in the context of alleged marginalisation of former chief minister Vasundhara Raje. It also came just ahead of the BJP’s now-launched four-phase Parivartan Yatra, which was launched at Ranthambore earlier this month.

According to BJP insiders, Raje’s followers are not only upset at the party’s hesitation to declare her as the chief ministerial candidate, but are also worried by the increasing involvement of other Rajasthan leaders, such as Shekhawat, Satish Poonia and Arjun Ram, in state politics.

“If we leave aside the case of ageing leaders who are to be replaced, then there is a growing desperation among many leaders that they might not get tickets under the increasing influence of Shekhawat, Poonia and Ram. Several leaders are also keeping their door open to join the Congress and that is why many are praising the CM… It also reflects that all is not well in the party,” a BJP MLA from the Raje camp told ThePrint.

Government loses bid to relax waterway pollution as Lords rebel

The government has lost its bid to relax rules around the pollution of waterways after a rebellion in the Lords.

Levelling Up Secretary Michael Gove unveiled the plan last month, saying scrapping so-called “nutrient neutrality” measures would free up developers and lead to thousands more homes being built in England.

But the Tory amendment introduced in the Lords – which would have seen the policy tagged on to the Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill – was rejected by peers over the risk it would pose to the environment.

Politics Hub: Strikes could be ‘defining issue’ of Sunak’s premiership

Nutrient neutrality rules were first introduced across the EU back in 2017, designed to stop developers polluting local wetlands and waterways in protected areas when building homes.

In practice, it means companies have to show how they will prevent or offset that pollution in order to win planning permission.

Developers claimed new homes only made a “negligible contribution to the river pollution” so scrapping the measure would help ramp up projects – something Mr Gove and the government agreed with.

Putting the plan to peers, communities minister Baroness Scott said the powers were “necessary and proportionate”.

She said the current rules had “effectively stalled or blocked completely housing development in affected areas” and were “burdensome and expensive”.

But opposition parties and environmental campaigners said it would lead to even more issues in the country’s waterways, with Labour’s Baroness Jones saying it would set a “dangerous precedent”.

Tory former environment minister Lord Deben – who chaired the Climate Change Committee until recently – said it was “one of the worst pieces of legislation I have ever seen and I’ve been around a long time”.

After the vote rejecting the policy, shadow Levelling Up secretary Angela Rayner called the defeat “humiliating” for the government, and said the “flawed plan” was just an attempt to “score cheap political points”.

She added: “We stand ready to sit down with the government, housebuilders and environmental groups to agree on a workable solution to build the homes we need.

“If they refuse this opportunity, ministers have only themselves to blame.”

The Conservative government has pledged to build 300,000 new homes every year by the mid-2020s.

Parliamentary figures show housing supply has increased year-on-year from a low point of 125,000 in 2012/13, reaching a high point of 243,000 new homes in 2019/20 – but they have not yet reached the target.

Court orders environment minister to unblock Rebel News founder on X | CBC News


Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault must unblock Rebel News founder Ezra Levant on X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter, under the terms of a court order.

Ezra Levant launched legal action 2 years ago claiming the minister was violating his constitutional rights

Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault must unblock Rebel News founder Ezra Levant on X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter, under the terms of a court order.

The order issued by Federal Court Justice Russel Zinn ends an action Levant filed two years ago claiming the Liberal minister was violating his constitutional rights by blocking him.

Levant argued that his inability to see or respond to Guilbeault’s posts on the platform limited his ability to engage in debate on matters of public concern.

Lawyers in the case wrote to Zinn on Sept. 7 consenting to an order that would resolve the matter.

Under the order, the minister must ensure his X account unblocks Levant immediately and remains unblocked for as long as Guilbeault remains a member of Parliament.

University of Ottawa law professor Michael Geist, who has followed the case, said that while the order does not affirm a constitutional right, it sends a strong signal about the state of the law.

Mizoram CM recalls days as rebel leader, calls state ‘one of the most peaceful’ in world

Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga said Thursday that the state has emerged as an island of peace amidst the sea of turmoil.

Speaking at the Mizo Students’ Union general conference in Thenzawl town, the former-rebel-leader-turned-politician proudly called Mizoram one of the most peaceful states in the world, one that offers a safe and peaceful refuge to those who have fled their homes, in Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Manipur, owing to political turmoil.

While he was referring to the condition of Rohingyas in Myanmar, neighbouring Manipur has also been on the boil since May, owing to ethnic violence between the state’s Kuki and Meitei communities.

Zoramthanga recalled his own experiences during his rebel days when he said he and several leaders of the then-outlawed Mizo National Front (MNF), sought refuge in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh).

“I have experienced the relief of having a sound sleep even for one night in the then East Pakistan after fleeing political disturbances in Mizoram. I can sense the joy of our brethren from Myanmar, Bangladesh, and Manipur as they find solace in Mizoram, where they can sleep soundly and carry on with their daily lives without fear,” said CM.

It was the signing of the Peace Accord in Mizoram — the Memorandum of Settlement in 1986 — which ended two decades of strife and insurgency in Mizoram, turning into one of the Indian states a year later. After coming overground in 1986, the MNF was converted into a political party and is now a recognised state party.

‘Cherish and value peace’

Highlighting that Mizoram is now one of the most peaceful states in the world — a condition achieved after enduring relentless disturbances, he said — the CM said the people of the state should always cherish and value this peace.

“Our insurgency-riddled neighbours often turned to Mizoram in search of lasting peace, seeking Aizawl’s assistance in mediating peace between their governments and insurgent groups,” Zoramthanga, who had acted as mediator between insurgent groups and governments in the past, said.

He praised the efforts of the state government, the people, and various organisations in Mizoram in supporting ethnic communities and also acknowledged the role of Mizo students in achieving this.

“We shall never forget the courageous efforts of Mizo student organisations during the tumultuous Mizoram insurgency period. Let us follow in the footsteps of those pioneers who fearlessly defended our rights. It is time to recommit ourselves to this land and its people.”

The event also saw the state’s Ladies Organisation honouring the chief minister by presenting him with a citation for providing shelter to Myanmar refugees.

‘Outgreening the Greens’ Jacob Rees-Mogg to rebel against ‘extreme’ eco measures

Jacob Rees-Mogg has announced that he will “obviously” be voting against the Government’s Energy Bill.

Ministers will vote on the matter as they return from their summer recess, with Labour said to support the proposed changes.

Just six more Tory backbenchers are need to vote in favour to overturn the Government’s majority.

GB News’ Jacob Rees-Mogg will not be one of them, as he branded the bill “extreme” in how it ramp up onshore wind measures.


“This will enable £20 billion of your money to be spent on carbon capture technology”, he said.

“That’s a lot of your money to be spent on a speculative technology.


“A recent study showed that when carbon capture is used for an industrial plant, when taking into account the C02 emissions produced via the process itself, emissions would only be reduced by about 10 per cent.

“It gives power to the Government to criminalise people in the future for not following regulations with minimal Parliamentary oversight.”

In July, Sir Alok Sharma, the former Cop26 president, formally proposed an amendment to the Government’s Energy Bill.

His amendment requires the Government to show developers how they can demonstrate that local communities support their plans and how they can provide financial benefits to those communities.

The plan would also prohibit appeals against a decision by a local council to refuse planning permission for a wind farm to ensure local wishes are respected.

The amendment had been signed by more than 20 backbench Conservatives, including ex-prime minister Liz Truss and several other former ministers.

Rees-Mogg warned about the Energy Bill creating a “quick route” for criminal offences.

“This is constitutionally wrong”, he said.

“It may also make it difficult for people to sell or rent properties which aren’t of a high enough insulation standard.

“We have a very old housing stock in this country where one side of the Government won’t give you permission to make them more environmentally friendly, and another side saying you won’t be able to sell them if you haven’t made them environmentally friendly.

“This will have a knock on effect on the housing market, and it will take away peoples’ major asset.”

‘Take revenge’ – Russian rebel fighters urge Wagner soldiers to march on Moscow

Wagner Group soldiers have been invited to turn cloak and join the Ukrainian side by the Russian Volunteer Corps (RVC).

The Corps, a far-right paramilitary unit composed of Russian citizens fighting on the Ukrainian side against Vladimir Putin‘s invasion, filmed a video in which they addressed members of the paramilitary group led by Yevgeny Prigozhin hours after the Russian financier reportedly died in a plane crash.

It hasn’t yet been officially confirmed Mr Prigozhin was on the plane alongside other leading figures of Wagner and whether the Kremlin played a role in the incident.

But the RVC, created in August 2022 and reportedly including Russian emigrants united by their opposition to Putin, are seemingly attributing the alleged death of Mr Prigozhin, former GRU member and Wagner founder Dmitry Utkin, and the other eight people on the aircraft to the Kremlin.

As he claimed the Wagner leadership was “cynically executed”, one member of the Corps told the paramilitary men to join his ranks.

In a video dated August 24 and filmed with infra-red lights, RVC commander Denis Kapustin said, according to the translation provided: “I am addressing the fighters of Wagner PMC for whom the words ‘loyalty’ and ‘honour’ still mean something.

“By all appearances, yesterday, your elder [Prigozhin] founder and commander [Utkin] were cynically executed and you clearly know who is behind it.

“Therefore, you now face a serious choice: Either join the ranks of the Russian Defence Ministry and serve the executioners of your commanders as their chained hands; Or: Take revenge.”

Revenge, he continued, can come by joining the Ukrainian side and fight the troops led by the Russian Ministry of Defence.

He said: “In order to take revenge, you must switch to the side of Ukraine. If you have not committed war crimes, we invite you to join our ranks. Let’s together end this bloody meat grinder SMO [special military operation] and then march on Moscow.”

Referring to the short-lived mutiny led by Mr Prigozhin in late June, which likely contributed to his alleged demise, the Corps member added in the video: “And this time, let’s not stop 200km away from the city, and go to the end.”

It is not known how many troops make up the Russian Volunteer Corps, but Ilya Ponomarev, a former member of the Russian State Duma believes it is made up of around 500 men.

Mr Kasputin has been described by the US-based Anti-Defamation League as a “Russian neo-Nazi who lived in Germany for many years”.

Mr Prigozhin’s name was on the passengers list of the private jet that crashed in the Tver region north of Moscow on Wednesday evening.

While the family hasn’t officially confirmed, Telegram channels close to Wagner Group issued tributed to the mercenaries’ leader and claimed he had been killed by “traitors to Russia“.

A once close ally of Putin, Mr Prigozhin’s fall from grace came as he openly criticised the Kremlin – particularly the military leadership – for the handling of the war against Kyiv.

After months of vitriolic criticism, on June 23 – exactly two months before the plane crash – Mr Prigozhin launched a mutiny, which saw his men briefly taking over the Russian city of Rostov and marching towards Moscow.
