tom cruise billion dollar lawsuit mission impossible ghost protocol script

Xenu have mercy! This dude is NOT messing around!

Timothy Patrick McLanahan, an apparent screenwriter, is suing Tom Cruise and the other producers of Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol for one billion dollars.

Yes, $1,000,000,000 — that's nine zeroes!

He says the action flick, which made almost $700 million at the international box office, ripped off a script of his called Head On. He claims he noticed the similarities in scripts were "immediately recognized" and now he's demanding a 10-figure sum!!!

Timothy's court-filed paperwork revealed:

"Because the Ghost Protocol film generated close to $1 billion, I am asking for this amount in damages."

Whoa, talk about a Lawsuit: Improbable!

Mr. Cruise isn't the old defendant being sued, either. The screenwriter's lawsuit also names Paramount Pictures and a slew of other production companies responsible for MI4.

Do U think this guy has a solid case or will it self destruct?
