Caan Contract Lawsuit Denied31 March 2009
Caan filed a $5 million (£3.44 million) suit against Fish Weir Filmworks and writer/director Daniel Adams at California's Superior Court earlier this year (13Jan09).
The papers allege Adams and executives at the production company backed out of an agreement for him to play the lead role in forthcoming picture The Lightkeepers.
Caan is suing for breach of contract and fraud, claiming he was to be paid "$1,000,000 in cash on a pay-or-play basis... and $1,000,000 in deferred compensation".
However, bosses at Fish Weir Filmworks claim that Caan did not have a contract with the company, reports TMZ.com.
