Warner Bros and Clint Eastwood’s company sued over Trouble With The Curve

TWTC

Ya got trouble, Clint.

According to Deadline, producer Ryan A. Brooks has filed a lawsuit claiming Warner Bros ripped off three copyrighted scripts and a concept reel belonging to him for their 2012 feature, Trouble With The Curve.

Clint Eastwood’s Malpaso Productions as well as talent agencies UTA and Gersh are also named in the suit.

Brooks’ claim alleges the movie’s screenplay, credited to Randy Brown, was actually scripted by Don Handfield.

Handfield had been hired by Brooks to pen a baseball movie called Omaha, centering on a father-daughter relationship (just as Trouble With The Curve does).

The plaintiff is seeking “tens of millions of dollars” on each count (there are 12 in total), as well as all profits from the movie the defendants might have received.

Should Warner Bros lose, here’s the silver lining: Trouble With The Curve tanked at the box office, taking less than $50 million worldwide.
