The lawsuit, filed on Friday (16MAY03) in LOS ANGELES SUPERIOR COURT, accuses Warner BROS, parent company AOL TIME WARNER and the film's producers of breaching their 1998 oral agreement and a 2000 contract to revive his character Tank in the two sequels, and of slandering him.
Chong, 35, also accused the filmmakers of "intentionally publishing numerous false statements that he was a terrorist", and of conspiring to blackball him in Hollywood.
Film industry sources say the actor made repeated phone calls of a harassing nature to the filmmakers after his salary demands were not met. Tank was subsequently written out of the sequels and replaced with a character named LINK.
A Warner Bros spokesman and a spokeswoman for writer-directors ANDY and Larry Wachowski declined to comment on the pending litigation.20/05/2003 21:19
