Nicolas Cage has settled his legal spat with a disgruntled producer pal.

Paul Brooks sued the star for cash he claimed he was owed from 2000 movie Shadow of the Vampire, but Cage resolved the matter a day later.

A representative for the actor, who was the executive producer of the Willem Dafoe film, tells, "Contrary to recent reports that a lawsuit was going forth by Paul Brooks and Early Bird Productions against Mr. Cage, this matter has been resolved privately and amicably between the parties and therefore no legal action is being pursued."

The lawsuit will reportedly be for...

Nicolas Cage is facing yet another financial mess amid his well-publicized tax woes - a Hollywood producer is suing the star for cash he alleges he's still owed from a 2000 movie.

Q&A: Ian Somerhalder On His Return To 'Lost' And His Thoughts On 'The Vampire Diaries'

Willem Dafoe
Willem Dafoe prefers playing bad guys on film, because they give him the chance to be more creative. The actor plays a cop in new movie Anamorph, but has made his name taking on big screen villains - from a blood sucker in 2000's Shadow of the Vampire, to comic book villain The Green Goblin in the Spider-Man series.

And he is happy to keep turning to the dark side on screen. He says, "It's more difficult to play someone virtuous. It's less rich fantasy for me. I'm always moved when someone does something generous or heroic in a movie, so you like to play that character. But, in appro...
