Sylvester Stallone Wins Court Case Over 'Expendables' Script
The lawsuit had come to light after Webb claimed that Stallone's script bore likeness to his own writing and plotline for a story called 'The Cordoba Caper', about a team of highly-trained mercenaries that never made it to film. Webb claimed that Stallone might have had access to it as it was shopped around Hollywood repeatedly during the last decade - something that was vehemently denied.
However, The Hollywood Reporter writes how the Judge pointed out that Webb started writing his script after Stallone's co-writer David Callaham had already scribed three drafts of his own and that he'd no information that either of the pair had ever seen 'Cordoba'. Oh. The Judge was also pushed to dismiss the case because any similarities that there were had been merely ideas, with the two concepts of the different pieces actually very different.
