Death Race in Court

There has been a lot of whoo-hah over Watchmen possibly being delayed due to disagreements between studios. Now it looks as if Paul W.S. Anderson's latest may be hitting the brakes (see what I did there?)

That's right. Death Race may be going to court.

Filmstalker have the story:

Adam Stone is a writer who is claiming that he pitched his script for a film called Joust to Paul W.S. Anderson and the producer Jeremy Bolt, after which they made a copy of it, returned it with a no thank you, and then made Death Race from it.

Stone claims, according to The Hollywood Reporter through Bloody Disgusting, that Death Race has been copied from his script and that he can prove it with at least thirty nine elements which mirror his screenplay.

Interesting news, especially due to the fact that the movie appears to be getting the best reviews of any Paul W.S. Anderson movie.

Discuss in the forum.
