Red Canvas writer/director Kenneth Chamitoff promised Rhames $200,000 for six days of work on the action film, according to a lawsuit filed by the actor in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday.

The Pulp Fiction star claims he only received $175,000 of the sum after a "stop payment" was put on his final $25,000 paycheck.

He's now suing Chamitoff and Red Canvas Productions for fraud and breach of contract, reports TMZ.com.
