Matt Dillon latest “Crash” co-star to sue for lost profits


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Controversy continues to swirl around Paul Haggis’ “Crash,” which won three Oscars in 2006 including the top prize for Best Picture.

“Crash” co-star Matt Dillon filed a claim in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday claiming he was still owed nearly $100,000 in profits, according to a report in the Hollywood Reporter.

Dillon states in the complaint that his company, Matthias Prods., presented the findings of an audit to Bob Yari and the film’s producers, they “deliberately authorized [the production entity] to apply an incorrect formula for the calculation of [Dillon’s] contingent compensation.”

This isn’t the first “Crash” lawsuit. Yari, himself, sued the Academy and the producers guild back in 2006 over him getting a credit on the film. (He lost.) Later, producers Cathy Shulman and Tom Nunan sued Yari, and also said he “withheld millions of dollars in profits from the films,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. And finally, Haggis, co-writer Bobby Moresco and co-star Brendan Fraser also filed a lawsuit seeking their share of profits from the film.

More on this case as it develops.
