Selon le Guardian, Roman Polanski avait déjà fait appel de cette décision auprès de l'Académie, qui a rejeté son appel en janvier dernier.

Un peu moins d'un an après avoir été exclu des rangs de l'Académie des Oscars, en même temps que le comédien Bill Cosby, le cinéaste Roman Polanski a décidé de poursuivre hier l'organisation en justice dans le but d'obtenir réparation et d'être réintégré.

A l'époque, le Conseil des gouverneurs de l'Académie, composée de 54 membres, avait dit avoir suivi ses nouvelles normes de bonne conduite, adoptées au début du mouvement #MeToo et après la chute du producteur Harvey Weinstein. Il estime qu'elle aurait dû lui donner un "préavis raisonnable" avant toute mesure d'exclusion, et "une chance raisonnable de se faire entendre".

Roman Polanski avait plaidé coupable en 1977 de détournement de mineure pour avoir eu des relations sexuelles illégales avec Samantha Geimer, alors âgée de 13 ans. "Les procédures suivies pour expulser M. Polanski étaient équitables et raisonnables. L'Académie défend une décision appropriée", a répondu un porte-parole vendredi dans un communiqué transmis à Variety.

Harland Braun, l'avocat de Polanski, qui espère obtenir réparation pour les coûts engendrés par ces poursuites et voir son client rejoindre à nouveau les rangs de l'Académie des Oscars au plus vite, assure notamment, toujours selon Deadline, que "l'Académie a manqué de respecter ses propres règles et procédures en renvoyant le pétitionnaire du jour au lendemain, sans lui laisser l'opportunité d'être entendu, et a donc délibérément violé le Codes des Corporations californiennes".
