Hey there movie buffs, I'm Tatiana Carrier and I've got the details on the lawsuit Sylvester Stallone has just landed! According to Entertainment weekly, A writer is accusing Sylvester Stallone of stealing his screenplay and turning it into The Expendables. Marcus Webb filed a lawsuit in Manhattan federal court claiming that The Expendables is "in some places identical" to his 2006 short story and screenplay, titled The Cordoba Caper. In the lawsuit, Webb says his screenplay tells "the story of a team of elite, highly trained mercenaries hired to defeat General Garza, a rogue army general of a small Latin American country." The villain in Stallone's film was also named General Garza, and Webb claims there were also several more unusual similarities between his script and Stallone's film. Now this is familiar territory for Stallone...back in 2003 a retired boxer named Chuck Wepner, sued the filmmaker for failing to compensate the boxer, nicknamed the Bayonne Bleeder, for his life story. That case was settled out of court in 2006. So what's up with all this script stealing? Do you guys think there is truth to this lawsuit, or are people just trying to get money out of Stallone? Let us know what you think by commenting below! Thanks for hanging out, see ya next time!
