Adrien Brody’s new film caught up in legal battle

Oscar-winning actor Adrien Brody has asked a federal judge to put a hold on DVD sales for a film he made in 2008, based on Brody’s complaint that the producers of the film have not yet paid him everything he was owed according to the terms of his contract.

Brody, who for some reason agreed to do the horror movie for a measly $1.5 million, has received less than $1 million so far.  Apparently the movie wasn’t very good, either, because it never even made it to theaters – it has gone straight to DVD.  The producers of the movie claim that Brody has been bullying them for months about the money, but they just don’t have it, and if he wants to get paid, trying to get some money back from the DVD sales may be his best chance.
