Michael Madsen has been hit with a lawsuit from director DOUGLAS GREEN over allegations the actor pulled out of a new movie.
Green claims the Reservoir Dogs star had agreed to a role in his project Vigilante and accepted an initial $20,000 (£13,000) fee.
The director alleges Madsen demanded a further $20,000 before filming began but walked away from the movie when Green refused.
Green has filed legal papers against Madsen for breach of contract and he's demanding more than $100,000 (£66,600) in damages, according to TMZ.com.
The actor's representative tells the website Madsen is planning to file a counter-suit because he was allegedly never paid the balance of money owed to him.
