Tommy Lee Jones Sues Over 'no Country'

2008-09-09


Actor Tommy Lee Jones has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures


and its subsidiary involved in the production of No Country for Old


Men, according to an AP story published in Variety. Jones' lawsuit


alleges that he was promised "significant box-office bonuses" to


compensate for a reduced upfront fee for his appearance in the film.


While the Oscar winner was a hit, making over $160 million, Jones


hasn't received a penny. He wants an auditor to review financial


records and decide how much he is owed, and anticipates it will be


over $10 million.—Movietimes.com Movie News Bureau
