Writers Sue Over Aniston's New Movie

JENNIFER ANISTON's new movie is at the centre of a legal battle - two screenwriters insist the plot was stolen from them.
Greg Crowder and Tony Freitas have filed a lawsuit against NBC Universal executives, claiming their script titled The Truth was snubbed by Scott Bernstein when he was Vice President of Production for Universal Pictures in 2006 - and has now been revamped as Love Happens, which stars Aniston and Aaron Eckhart.
In documents obtained by TMZ.com, Crowder and Freitas want the film, which hits cinemas in America on Friday (18Sep09), pulled from release or $100,000 (£66,000) in damages.
Crowder claims Bernstein told him the script for The Truth needed a rewrite before Universal would buy it. The executives refused to pay for the rewrite and the deal fell apart.
The writer was then shocked when he realised Aniston's new movie - about a self-help guru with a dark past - was a little too similar to the premise of the script he had written with Freitas.
