The producers of THE SOPRANOS star James Gandolfini's new movie have come under fire after setting up a cigarette smoking scene on a non-smoker's lawn - without permission.

EMMANUEL ONUAGULUCHI (corr) is demanding $100,000 (GBP55,550) from production company HUMPERDINCK PRODUCTIONS because they filmed scenes for ROMANCE + CIGARETTES outside his home in Queens, New York, without getting his OK.

Humperdinck location planners offered Onuaguluchi $250 (GBP139) to use his lawn for the shoot, but he refused. The shoot went ahead regardless.
