A woman who claims she was a literary scout for Maverick Films and that she discovered "Twilight" and "The Lightning Thief" as possibilities for feature films says that she hasn't been paid what she's owed for the two -- "Twilight," obviously, went on to become a huge success. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nanette Shipley has only been given a small part of what she's owed:

She says her complaint against Marverick and topper Mark Morgan that she was promised $75,000 for her work in connection with Twilight and $100,000 for her work in connection with The Lighting Thief. She says she's only been paid $20,000 and wants the outstanding $155,000 plus legal costs.
