Greg Crowder and Tony Freitas claim the script for Jennifer Aniston’s new movie “Love Happens” was straight up stolen from them by NBC Universal. They want to stop the movie from being released or they want more than $100,000,000. - according to TMZ
The two screenwriters have just filed a lawsuit against NBC Universal, claiming they gave a script titled “The Truth” to Scott Bernstein in 2006 when Scott was VP of Production for Universal Pictures.
In the federal lawsuit filed by the screenwriters’ lawyer claims he had multiple meetings with Bernstein about the script but Bernstein told him it needed a rewrite before Universal would buy it. Crowder said he’d rewrite if Universal paid. Universal didn’t pay so the deal fell apart.
Fast forward to 2009 … Crowder claims he submitted the script to another film company, who told him they were “concerned that [he] might have stolen” the script from the upcoming Jennifer Aniston/Aaron Eckhart project called “Love Happens.” The suit says it was the other way around.
The two screenwriters are asking a judge to block NBC Universal from releasing the film on September 18 that’s this coming Friday! If it gets released they want the profits which they estimate at more than $100,000,000!
Holy Moly Guacamole I can’t even figure out how to read that figure. I hope something works out because I love those Jennifer Aniston or Aaron Eckhart’s movies! Romantic comedies are the best! No stress, lots of laughters and lovey dovey!
