NEW LINE ‘BOOK’ PAYMENT A DROP IN SAG’S BUCKET

New Line Cinema, currently embroiled in an arbitration with the Screen Actors Guild for $6 million in residuals, made a belated payment to the union last week.

The Turner Broadcasting System-owned company sent SAG a check for slightly more than $1,100 as a quarterly payment for resids on the 1991 release “Book of Love.” Sources say it’s one of the first resid payments New Line has made on the pic since it came out.

The check happens to have been sent within days of a $5,000 small claims court suit (and the pursuant media coverage) filed against New Line by a 24-year-old L.A. thesp who appeared in “Book of Love.”

The film also happens to have been directed by no less than New Line chairman Bob Shaye.

The check is somewhat shy of the $15,000 the actor claims is due him in resids. And according to SAG, the $1,100 check may end up being divided by as many as 92 actors who appeared in the pic.

That translates to $11.96 per thesp.
