Hollywood producer Rusty Lemorande has filed a $6 million (£4 million) lawsuit against the filmmakers of a documentary about comedy classic Caddyshack, amid allegations of defamation.
Lemorande has hit out at Pangolin Pictures bosses for depicting him as an onset spy in Caddyshack: The Inside Story, suggesting he was hired by movie executives to report on the behaviour of the golf film's stars, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield and Chevy Chase.
In legal papers, Lemorande claims an interview he granted to documentary makers was heavily edited to make it appear as if he was a 23-year-old snitch for chiefs at the Jon Peters Organization, which financed the 1980 film with Orion Pictures.
Lemorande's lawyer, Alexander Shapiro, says, "They really wanted to get the juicy stuff out of him. When they didn't get the answers they wanted, they manufactured a fiction to make him look like a spy."
The producer is suing for damages, claiming the documentary, which aired on the A&E Biography Channel in 2009, tainted his reputation and cost him future jobs in Hollywood, reports the New York Daily News.
