Most of us remember Kevin Costner as Robin Hood in the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. What you may not know is that Costner is most likely to win the right to pursue a legal case against the production company behind this film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it has been suggested by a judge that the actor will be given permission to proceed with a fraud claim against production company Morgan Creek, which Costner’s lawyers claim hid money from him by assigning foreign distribution rights to a company owned by Morgan Creek CEO James Robinson.
Costner has accused Morgan Creek of hiding profits by under-reporting home video revenue of Robin Hood. The actor is seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
This is not the first time the production company has a legal issue like this, as it has been previously accused of shielding liabilities in relation to the film The Good Shepherd .
The court’s decision will be given in a hearing tomorrow.
