Christensen Sues Producer For $3 Million
Actor HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN and his producer brother have filed a $3 million (GBP2 million) lawsuit against a filmmaker they allege conned them into signing a bogus movie deal.
The Star Wars actor claims he struck a deal with producer Philippe Martinez in 2005 to star in a film called Crash Bandits.
The star's brother Tove also allegedly signed on to co-produce the project.
The pair are now suing Martinez, who they say claimed he had a $500 million (GBP333 million) to fund the film, and agreed to pay for the right to have first shot at producing the brothers' future projects, according to TMZ.com.
But the film never got made and now the brothers are demanding $3 million (GBP2 million) from Martinez.
