Hollywood stars Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper are taking legal action against two home theatre companies for allegedly using their images in advertisements without permission.

The actors have filed a lawsuit over ad campaigns for a home movie projection screen which shows a grab from their 2010 action blockbuster The A-Team.

In the lawsuit, obtained by Tmz.com, the pair is demanding damages from bosses at Vutec Corp. and First Impressions Theme Theaters, on top of an injunction on the promos.
