Sahara Film Battle On Again After Author Cussler Wins Appeal04 March 2010
Cussler was ordered to pay $5 million to Crusader Entertainment bosses after losing a contract dispute with the movie executives over the flop 2005 film, which starred Matthew MCConaughey and Penelope Cruz.
Cussler initially sued Crusader chiefs in 2004, claiming they did not honour his contract to have approval over the film's screenplay.
The movie bosses countersued, alleging the author refused to help promote the film as he had promised.
