Haggis Undaunted By Crash Lawsuits

CRASH writer/director PAUL HAGGIS has rubbished reports his film's win for Best Picture Oscar is marred because of a lawsuit amongst the film's producers. BOB YARI and three of the film's producers were removed from the movie's credits, because the Academy only allows two producers from each film to be nominated for the top prize. Yari filed a lawsuit on Tuesday (28FEB06) to receive a proper producing credit, while Shulman and Crash executive producer TOM NUNAN are suing Yari, claiming he failed to pay them more than $2 million (GBP1.14 million), that they are owed in fees and bonuses. When asked if the honour was muted because of the in-fighting Haggis shot back, "Do we look muted? Do our reactions come off as muted? "Because we're pretty f***kin' happy." Haggis added, "A lot of people made this film. The people who are listed as producers, CATHY (SCHULMAN), BOB (YARI), DON (CHEADLE), and MARK (HARRIS) and BOBBY(MORESCO), are the reason we're here."
