Washington: ‘Dark Knight’ director Christopher Nolan and his wife Emma Thomas have filed a lawsuit against their former and current agency, claiming that both are demanding millions in commissions.

Nolan and his wife have sued current agency WME as it claimed profits from movies that were initially shepherded by his previous agency CAA, a website has reported.

On the other hand their current agency CAA is still claiming its owed money on the same projects.

In accordance with the lawsuit, they are willing to pay the current agency their money, but they await the court’s decision as to who gets the money so they don`t pay one agency and get sued by the other.

Nolan’s agent signed on with WME, as he was fired from CAA earlier this year.
