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?
