Carradine’s Widow Settles Wrongful Death Suit

August 19, 2011

Court records show David Carradine’s widow has reached a settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit filed against a French company handling the actor’s final film.

An attorney for Anne Carradine filed a notice Monday in Los Angeles indicating the parties had reached a conditional settlement. Exact terms were not disclosed.

The 72-year-old “Kung Fu” star was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room in 2009 while working on a film called “Stretch.”

Anne Carradine sued MK2 S.A. in June 2010, claiming the company promised to provide David Carradine with an assistant to help him navigate Bangkok but the assistant left him behind for dinner on the night before the actor was found dead.

MK2 denied wrongdoing in court filings.

The settlement was first reported Wednesday by celebrity website TMZ.
