Craig Fairbrass - Craig Fairbrass Sues Over Action Film The Outsider

British actor Craig Fairbrass has filed suit against his Hollywood movie managers over allegations they cost him money for his 2014 action film The Outsider.

The Cliffhanger star accepted a $25,000 (£14,726) advance to play a military contractor in the movie, but agreed to defer his $40,000 (£23,529) fee from ZG Entertainment managers Mark and Christine Holder until after the film's March (14) release.

His filmmaking partner, The Outsider writer/director Brian Miller, also opted to defer his $15,000 (£8,824) purchase price for the script and instead allowed ZG Entertainment bosses to option his screenplay for just $1 (£0.59).

Miller also postponed collecting his $50,000 (£29,412) payment for directing the movie, which also starred James Caan, and was promised a cut of the film's proceeds, according to Los Angeles court papers, obtained by editors at Entlawdigest.com.

The director and his star claim they have yet to receive the full funds from the Holders and they're demanding an accounting of ZG Entertainment's funds and all profits from The Outsider. Fairbrass and Miller are also seeking damages for breach of contract, fraud and copyright infringement.
