The Producers, Writers And Director Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1990s Film Trilogy Have Filed A Lawsuit Alleging They Are Still Owed A Share Of The Franchise's Profits.
Producers Kim Dawson and Gary Propper have filed a complaint at Los Angeles Superior Court against production company Fortune Star Media, claiming the group received a cut of profits from distributor Warner Bros. for the 1990 live-action adaptation and the 1991 and 1993 sequels, but they were not passed on to the crew.
Dawson and Propper allege Fortune Star Media "systematically, knowingly and intentionally withheld" payments and that they are owed $1.5 million (£94,000) as they were entitled to 10 per cent of the net profits.

Defiant defenders of New York City, they must band together to fight against the merciless Foot Clan; a gang of vicious criminals led by city samurai The Shredder. Meanwhile, an aspiring reporter named April is following the turtles, but with no-one likely to believe her story the city residents have little hope left for peace in their crime ravaged home.
