Terminator: Salvation producer Moritz Borman has sued fellow producers Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek and their Halcyon Co. banner, alleging fraud and breach of contract for not paying him producing fees, Variety reported. Terminator: Salvation is set in post-apocalyptic 2029 with an adult John Connor, played by Bale, leading a war to save humanity from killing machines.
The suit, filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, lists eight causes of action and seeks more than $160 million in damages.
Borman alleged he had arranged for the transfer of the Terminator rights to Anderson and Kubiceck but would not have done so had he known of the pair's "shady" background or that the duo had been sued previously for "swindling" other motion picture investors.
Anderson and Kubiceck were not immediately available for comment. The fourth Terminator, starring Christian Bale and directed by McG, is set for release on May 21.
