Two screenwriters claim the script for Jennifer Aniston’s new movie was straight up stolen from them by NBC Universal — and now they want to stop the movie from being released … or they want more than $100,000,000.
Greg Crowder and Tony Freitas just filed a lawsuit against NBC Universal, claiming they gave a script titled “The Truth” to Scott Bernstein in 2006 — when Scott was VP of Production for Universal Pictures.
In the federal lawsuit filed by the screenwriters’ lawyer, Ed McPherson, Crowder claims he had multiple meetings with Bernstein about the script — but Bernstein told Crowder it needed a rewrite before Universal would buy it. Crowder said he’d rewrite it but only if Universal paid. Bernstein wouldn’t pay so the deal fell apart.
Fast forward to 2009 … Crowder says he submitted the script to another film company, who told him they were “concerned that [he] might have stolen” the script from the upcoming Jennifer Aniston/Aaron Eckhart project called “Love Happens.” The suit says it was the other way around.
Crowder and Freitas are asking a judge to block NBC Universal from releasing the film on September 18. If it gets released they want the profits … which they estimate at more than $100,000,000.
Jennifer Aniston tells Fox News that, when she’s finished filming The Bounty with Gerard Butler, she’ll be taking a few months off from acting.
“I’m going to go on an adventure, take myself somewhere. I won’t start another job until at least January,” Aniston, 40, says. “I want to take time off. I’m going to throw myself into ‘Echo’ (her production company) and just keep plugging away.”
It wasn’t a romantic date for two, but Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler are clearly enjoying each other’s company.
The pair, who sparked romance rumors while filming The Bounty in New York this summer, joined friends for a group dinner at Cliff’s Edge restaurant in L.A.’s trendy Silver Lake neighborhood on Sept. 9.
“Jen and Gerard had dinner with friends and they all seemed to enjoy themselves,” says a source.
The group of six were seated a candlelit patio – but it was a just-friends evening.
Aniston, in jeans and a tank top, “hugged all the diners in the group and was certainly not spending any special time on Gerard,” says the source. “Gerard kept the group entertained with stories and they all shared many laughs.”
Adds a second source, “It was not a romantic date, nor did they kiss. They didn’t even sit next to each other.”
One thing the pair do have in common, according to the restaurant’s valet: “Both Jen and Gerard were great tippers!”
Despite highly publicized splits from Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn and John Mayer, Jennifer Aniston still thinks she’ll find “The One.”
“I’m still a romantic,” the actress, 40, tells the October issue of Australia’s Harper’s Bazaar. “I still believe in love.”
Aniston also reflects on why the romance ends in relationships.
“I think it’s laziness. I really do. I think a good relationship is about collaboration,” she says. “I think you just need to talk to each other. Say what you need. Say what you want. That way it’s not threatening. You just need to say, ‘This is important to me.’ Don’t expect your mate to read your mind.”
Aniston (next seen in Love Happens, out Sept. 18) says she thinks women “do too much” for their men, and then act surprised when the guys take advantage.
“I think that’s because it’s just instinctual as a woman to be the caretaker of your home. Women complain that men don’t do enough, but it’s your own fault,” she says. “You train your man to do nothing. You can’t blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don’t ask for it right off the bat.”
The actress, who was rumored to be getting cozy Gerard Butler, her costar in The Bounty, also opens up abut how she moves past a relationship when it ends.
“I think it’s important to have closure in any relationship that ends — from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.”
