Director And Writer Of Weekend At Bernie’s Sue MGM And Fox

Chessie Reiss Staff Writer

Variety reports that Weekend at Bernie’s director Ted Kotcheff and writer Robert Kane filed a lawsuit against Fox and MGM, saying the companies have failed to pay the filmmakers profits. Both Kane and Kotcheff signed individual agreements; which first guaranteed them a flat fee, then a percentage of the adjusted gross receipts and a percentage of the net profits, respectively.  They say they have been denied “at least hundreds of millions of dollars” despite the box office receipts showing that the film gross $30 million in theatres and $16 million in residuals. The filmmakers claim they have not seen any profits from the 1980’s comedy. Kotcheff and Kane hope to get a jury trial, “monetary damages”, and punitive, general, and special damages as punishment against the studios. MGM has no comment, and Fox did not respond. http://www.Twitter.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.tumblr.com http://www.SoundCloud.com/PopWrapped http://www.Facebook.com/PopWrapped http://www.Instagram.com/PopWrapped http://www.Pinterest.com/PopWrapped http://www.YouTube.com/PopWrapped https://pop-wrapped.wordpress.com http://www.PopWrapped.com
