Sylvester Stallone sues Warner Bros. over fraud, 'dishonesty'

Pitting against a major Hollywood studio over the 1993 science-fiction movie 'Demolition Man', Sylvester Stallone sued Warner Bros over the claims that the studio covered up how much money the film made and bilked his production company out of its fair share of grosses. In a complaint lodged in Los Angeles Superior Court through his loan-out company Rogue Marble, the ' Rocky' star alleges that Burbank-based Warner Bros. spent years sitting on money owed to Stallone's company as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. In the complaint, Stallone said, "The motion picture studios are notoriously greedy. This one involves outright and obviously intentional dishonesty perpetrated against an international iconic talent. Here, WB decided it just wasn't going to account to Rogue Marble on the Film. WB just sat on the money owed to Rogue Marble for years and told itself, without any justification, that Rogue Marble was not owed any profits." It is said that since 'Demolition Man' made at least $125 million, the actor believes he's entitled to 15 percent and maybe more.
