Actor Rob Schneider and his producer brother JOHN have been hit with a breach of contract lawsuit by their former collaborator BOB RUBIN. The Schneider siblings are alleged to have reneged on a verbal agreement with Rubin over his fee for helping them find an investor for the as-yet-unreleased movie The Chosen One. In court papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (04Mar08), Rubin claims he secured finances of $9.5 million (GBP4.75 million) for the comedy in early 2007, for which John had promised him a three per cent take for raising the funds. But Rubin alleges his take was then reduced to just one per cent of the film's $8 million (GBP4 million) budget, meaning payment of $80,000 (GBP40,000), instead of the $240,000 (GBP120,000) he was promised. His lawsuit states: "Having known John Schneider and Robert Schneider for over 23 years, (Rubin) trusted John Schneider's word." The Schneiders' longtime collaborator finally agreed to the pay cut, but he allegedly encountered further trouble when he tried to collect the money. He claims he is still owed $60,000 (GBP30,000) by the brothers, an amount which has been outstanding since October (07). He is suing the Schneiders for at least $350,000 (GBP175,000) in damages, citing breach of contract, fiduciary duty and unjust enrichment. The Schneiders have yet to comment on the allegations.
