Benjamin Bratt sues movie bosses over money
London: Hollywood actor Benjamin Bratt is reportedly taking legal action against the bosses behind his latest movie "La Mission" over allegations they failed to pay him for his role in the film.
The former "Law & Order" star appears in the movie written and directed by his brother Peter as a father who struggles to come to terms with his son`s homosexuality.
Contactmusic.com reports Bratt claims he signed a contract with the movie`s distribution company, Screen Media Ventures, which would give him and production company 5 Stick Films two bonus payments if the picture did well at the box office.
The movie earned more than $1 million following its release in May, but Bratt claims the first payment of $200,000 was late and the company has yet to hand over the second instalment of the same amount.
He has now filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in a bid to recoup the cash.
Joseph Kovacs, president of Screen Media said: "There`s a disagreement on the guidelines on how to interpret when the film reached certain results."
