Bruce Willis in a legal tango

While De Niro and Pacino launch a likeness lawsuit

Looks like it’s celebrity justice time again in Hollywood: Bruce Willis is countersuing the producers of Three Stories About Joan, which he was lining up to star in and direct.

This comes on the heels of the movie’s producers suing Bruce for breaching his contract by walking off the film.

Willis now alleges that Moshe Diamant, Mark Damon and companies Foresight Unlimited and Signature Entertainment lied about having full financing to get the film made, and that they then admitted they didn’t have the money to pay Willis, his cast and crew.

In other lawsuit news, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino are suing the distributors of Righteous Kill and watch company Tutima for using their likenesses without consent.

They’re seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

The distributors, Overture, blabbed in a statement: “We are surprised by this action as Overture Films has not received any communication on this matter for months from Pacino, De Niro or their representatives. We take lawsuits very seriously and our legal team is addressing the issue."

Meanwhile, the case of everyone who had to see Righteous Kill suing for emotional boredom continues.

      It is awful and disgusting when producers go cheap! I am a Jean-Claude Van Damme fan and I am crossing my fingers that the production of Universal Soldiers: The Next Generation [2009] will not go cheap.
