Actor John Cusack Files Suit

•  Legal Business     updated  2008/07/17 08:43

John Cusack has filed a lawsuit against a movie production company for failing to pay him his guaranteed $4.5 million fee.

The "War, Inc." star, 42, claimed that Intermedia Film Equities USA had asked him to star in a film entitled "Stopping Power" and promised him the guaranteed $4.5 million fee, whether or not the flick was completed. Additionally, Intermedia also promised him to pay for his expenses, including his staffs' costs on location amounting to $50,000.

His lawyer, Marty Singer, filed the suit in Los Angeles County Superior Court. He claims that the actor traveled to Germany to shoot but the company told him they couldn't afford his fee and eventually canceled the production.

He said that Intermedia never really had the budget to pay Cusack. They allegedly convinced him to star in the film and travel to Germany and then tried to renegotiate a lower fee.

The actor is seeking $5.6 million plus damages.
