Sylvester Stallone - Sylvester Stallone Seeking Costs Of The Expendables Lawsuit

Sylvester Stallone has taken legal action to recoup the costs of a lawsuit over his movie The Expendables.

The Hollywood tough guy co-wrote the script for the 2010 blockbuster, which united him with action heroes including Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, but screenwriter Marcus Webb subsequently filed legal papers alleging the film was based on his script for a project called The Cordoba Caper.

He claimed The Expendables was "strikingly similar and in some places identical" to his own work, and demanded unspecified damages for copyright infringement as well as an injunction to stop work on the 2012 sequel.

Stallone denied the allegations and last year (12), a judge in New York sided with the actor and dismissed the lawsuit - and now the star has filed papers asking for more than $300,000 (£187,500) to cover his costs of the case, according to the New York Post.
