Olivia Munn Wants Warner Bros. to Sever All Ties With Brett Ratner

”If you ask me, now, do I feel good? Do I feel like I have justice? No,“ she said

Actress Olivia Munn is still seeking justice after accusing Brett Ratner of sexual misconduct and hopes Warner Bros. will end their working relationship with him.

“I want Warner Bros. to sever all ties and relationships with Brett Ratner,” Munn told the Los Angeles Times. 

Ratner, with his RatPac Entertainment banner, has a first-look deal with the studio, including a film co-financing pact. According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, the studio still plans to release five more films that RatPac helped to finance, including next year’s Steven Spielberg film “Ready Player One.”

“If you ask me, now, do I feel good? Do I feel like I have justice? No,” she told The Times. “I’m thankful that we’re in this moment where our voices actually matter. But I don’t feel like there’s actually an awakening of consciousness in Hollywood. There’s an understanding that there will be backlash in the marketplace and to their bottom line if they don’t make these big announcements. They aren’t woke; they’re scared.”

Munn told the Los Angeles Times earlier this month that while visiting the set of “After the Sunset” as an aspiring actress in 2004, director Ratner masturbated in front of her in his trailer when she went to deliver a meal. The “Newsroom” actress said that years later she ran into Ratner at a CAA party, where he boasted of ejaculating onto magazine covers featuring her image.

“I’ve made specific, conscientious choices not to work with Brett Ratner,” Munn said. “It feels as if I keep going up against the same bully at school who just won’t quit. You just hope that enough people believe the truth and for enough time to pass so that you can’t be connected to him anymore.”

Ratner will no longer have studio space on Warner Bros.’ Burbank lot and RatPac’s first-look deal with the studio, which recently expired, will not be renewed, the individual said. The filmmaker has also been removed as a producer of “The Goldfinch,” an adaptation of Donna Tartt’s best-selling novel that was his only active project at the studio.

While the studio has made no decision about renewing its co-financing deal with Ratner, RatPac-Dune has been one of the biggest financiers of Warner Bros. and New Line films, underwriting such hits as “Gravity,” “The LEGO Movie,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “The Conjuring 2,” “Wonder Woman,” “Dunkirk” and “It.”

This year, films co-produced by RatPac have accounted for 54 percent of Warner Bros.’ $1.76 billion in domestic revenue at the box office. When films financed by RatPac with New Line are included, that figure increases to 82.8 percent, or $1.46 billion.
