'Death Race' Producers Accused Of Plagiarism
Writer Adam Stone claims producer/director Paul W.S. Anderson and producer Jeremy Bolt have been using his ideas for their movie. Stone claims the film is based on a script he previously pitched to Anderson and Bolt.
According to the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles federal court on Tuesday, Stone is seeking a court order to stop the film's release. Death Race is purported to be a remake of the 1975 film, Death Race 2000, but Stone claims it is based on his movie, Joust.
The picture, which stars Jason Statham and Joan Allen, is set for release on Friday. Stone seeks unspecified damages.
