There won't be any settlement in the lawsuit between Michael Moore and Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

Moore sued the Weinsteins back in February, claiming that they owe him $2.7 million from his film, Farenheit 9/11.

He alleged that they used "financial deception" and "bogus accounting methods" in their production deal.

He continues:

"No settlement. No interest in one. Discovery and depositions will reveal how the accounting is done, once and for all.

Harvey and I have a lot of important history together, brothers in arms. And he and Bob have nothing but a force for good indie filmmakers … I hold no ill will, and for now am just blaming all of this on his accountants and business affairs people."

A lawyer for the Weinsteins dispute the allegations, saying:

"[Harvey and Bob] have paid [Moore] everything he should be paid. [The Weinsteins] would be rushing to settle if they were concerned, but they're not. [The lawsuit] is riddled with inaccuracies and ridiculous claims."

Ouch.

It's too bad when a bad business deals get in the way of a professional relationship.

Who do U think is telling the truth?

    The ironic thing here is how much Moore claims to hate America's capitalism, yet he continues on with this lawsuit and is already a very wealthy man because he was able to produce films in a free society…. he's suchhhhh a douche.

    That documentary is pretty old. Why's this happening nearly a decade later?



  3. 3

    Three bloated pigs with nasty pube hair on their fugly pusses fighting over money. They all deserve to fall down face first in a pile of the own vomit.

    A left-wing extremist vs two jews. This could get interesting.

    DAMN he's hideous. I liked the movie but he does have the super PARANOID greedy look about him doesn't he? I've heard he hates Peta and animal causes probably because he doesn't want to give up his beefy greeeeeeeeeezy pork sandwiches served on a dirty ashtray!

    Moore is a fat money grubbing "Hypocrite" that will do or say anything for a Buck!! You couldn't pay me to watch his $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ get rich documentaries that, LIE & SUK!

    moore doesn't hate capitalism, unfair capitalism is what he detests.
    fahrenheit 9/11 made over 200 million on a 6 million dollar budget. you'd think the production company would be thrilled to compensate the artist fairly for such incredible financial success.

    It's about numerical fact and what the books reveal once accounting transparency has been achieved. Truth can't be determined from these statements. Only Weinstein's accountant seems to know what 'truth' is right now.

    I HATE it when accountants screw up my efforts to exploit victims of terrorism for cash!



  11. 11

    It's long been alleged that Hollywood screws the talent, I go with Moore

  14. 14

    FAT ASS IS A FUCKING HYPOCRITE!! DELETING COMMENTS NOW, WHAT A LAME ASS DOUCHE. LIKE I SAID, MICHAEL MOORE'S CAREER IS OVER. NO ONE CARES ABOUT HIS DOCUMENTARIES ANYMORE. HE'S SCRAPING FOR EVERY CENT AND IMAGINERY ROYALTY TO FUND HIS NON-EXISTENT CAREER. NOW HE'S JUST THE FAT DUMB GUY WHO WEARS A FARMER'S CAP ON TV TALK SHOWS ON SO-CALLED "SOCIAL INJUSTICES" OF THE WORLD.
