Lawsuit! Michael Moore Vs. The Weinsteins

michael moore vs the weinsteins

We would NOT be enthusiastic about messing with ANY of these guys!

Michael Moore has filed a lawsuit against the Weinstein Bros, claiming they secretly diverted profits from Faherenheit 9/11, and that they owe him millions of dollars. Yikes!

His company, Westside Productions, claims that based on their deal with the Weinsteins, profits from the film were to be split 50/50. According to Moore's lawyer Larry Stein, the Weinstein Bros used "bogus accounting methods to hide the true amounts due Westside."

Moore is suing Harvey and Bob Weinstein for amounts in excess of $2.7 million.

Hopefully they're able to work this out before things get ugly…although knowing all the parties involved, we won't be shocked if this gets messy sooner than later.

Team Moore or Team Weinsteins?

    Awe, all this time I thought Mikey Moore was about sharing the wealth. He must mean your's not his.

    the movie business is the most crooked business in the world because there are so many jews in it

    The Weinsteins hogging all the money? Noooooo. Of course, this is what they always do - but they're too powerful so no one says anything. Go Moore

    Oh the irony. At least the Weinstens don't hide their shadiness… but Moore has no excuse.

    I was once a huge fan of Michael Moore. He's completely lost my respect. He ridicules others for their greed. Time to take a look in the mirror, buddy. P.S. I'd love to see your crib on MTV as well as a disclosure of your banking statements. And by the way, Michael if we go to universal health care, do I need to pay for the diseases you're sure to get for being obese?

    Moore is a capitalistic pig! And he's trying to get his snout in the trough. Watch out.

    Michael Moore take these subversive phonies to the courthouse. And Michael I really hope you join the truth movement and use what the truthers have been using to the extent they have, in your future films. Your last film was your BEST film and the ones who promoted it, DIDNT because it outlined, exposed, and identified for the aloof American public, just who the motherfucking bankers really are and the derivatives mess they caused. All your films are mentioned at the oscars and NOT the last one? (Capitalism: A Love Story). I guess any film or commentary or uttering of a whimper about WALL STREET DEMOCRATS who run the four major banks in the United States is off limits. [ PS: YES, GO AHEAD…..READ BETWEEN THE FUCKING LINES ].

    Michael Moore wants to profit from capitalism??? I forgot, Hollywood is immune to regulation, and sharing the wealth…it is just us serfs who have to give up what little extra cash we have to all of the irresponsible deadbeats!!!!!!!!

    Share the wealth Michael. Share the wealth please. Moore is such a **&^%$ assh**le, douche bag!!!!!

    Michael Moore has always just seen people suffering and thought 'how can I exploit this for cash'.

    Basically is just about as bad a human as there is on earth. So I guess he'll get this cash too, the world seems to work that way for some reason.

    tell this f-in fat bastard its "distribution of his wealth" f-in America hater….he can go back and chew on his ham sandwich and hopefully choke on it.

    If Moore has been surreptitiously ripped off and is owed some due, then team Moore, of course. A deal is a deal, rich or poor.
