Coming off the heels of a “Transformers 3” catastrophe — which brought about an extra’s critical injuries and an $ 18.5 million settlement — a woman is now suing “Men in Black 3” for a wardrobe malfunction.
According to THR, Danika Gerner filed the lawsuit claiming that the filmmakers on “MIB 3” outfitted her in a costume which was in “defective and dangerous condition” and explained that the crew were “negligent in failing to take suitable precautions” for her safety. The plaintiff said she suffered “serious bodily injuries” during production of the sci-fi blockbuster.
Gerner has not specify how the wardrobe malfunction occurred nor the injuries she sustained during filming. Columbia Pictures has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s, request for comment.
“Men in Black 3,” which opened in theaters last weekend, ended up knocking out “The Avengers” for the top spot at the box office.
“Coming to America”
Writer Art Buchwald sued Paramount Pictures, claiming that they stole his idea for ‘Coming to America.’ Buchwald won the lawsuit.
“The Passion of the Christ”
The movie’s screenwriter, Benedict Fitzgerald, sued Mel Gibson over not paying him enough money for the film. They settled out of court.
Another movie that spawned a ton of legal trouble: writer/star Sacha Baron Cohen was sued for defamation as well as using footage of people without their permission.
“The Hangover, Part II”
What hasn’t ‘The Hangover, Part II’ been sued for at this point? First the filmmakers were hit with a lawsuit alleging that they copied Mike Tyson’s face tattoo without permission. That was dropped, but then they were sued again by a stunt man who suffered injuries on set. (That lawsuit is still pending.) A man also sued the filmmakers, claiming that they stole his life story and used it for ‘Hangover, Part II.’ Yeesh.
“Natural Born Killers”
The family of a Louisiana store clerk, who was shot by a young couple on a crime spree, sued Oliver Stone, claiming this movie inspired the crimes. <a href=”http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/1217642.stm” target=”_hplink”>The lawsuit was eventually dropped</a>.
