“Black Swan” intern suit may get bigger

Plaintiffs petitioned to file two separate class action suits

Unpaid interns are angry … that’s nothing new. But if a recent filing is any indication of their most recent state of mind, it’s this: They’re getting even angrier.

Last year, two unpaid interns who worked on the film “Black Swan” filed suit against the movie’s production company, Fox Searchlight Pictures, claiming it violated labor laws. Now the plaintiffs want to file an amended suit to "broaden the scope of the case to include all interns who participated in Fox Entertainment Group's internship program," a court filing on Monday said. Fox Entertainment Group (FEG) is the parent company of Fox Searchlight.
