Michael Moore Sues Weinsteins for $2.7 Million

Feb 07, 2011

  • From the guy who brought us the movie Capitalism: A Love Story comes a lawsuit against his former distributors, the Weinstein Bros. Oscar-winning documentary director Michael Moore is accusing the brothers of "Hollywood accounting tricks" and "financial deception" in cheating him out of $2.7 million in profits from his documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore says that the Weinsteins and Fellowship Adventure Group, a distribution handle the brothers created, were to split the profits 50-50, but they instead hid money from Moore. While the Weinsteins haven't commented on the matter, we're pretty sure you may have a comment or two regarding the polarizing Moore, or the Weinsteins. --Derrick Deane
