Legal Action May Stop Jesse Eisenberg Film Night Moves
Jesse Eisenberg & Dakota Fanning are due to start filming a new film called Night Moves next month, however legal action could now halt production permanently on the project. Edward R. Pressman Films, the production company behind American Psycho, has brought a legal action claiming that the plot of the film is stolen form a book which it already owns the film right too.
The book in question is The Monkey Wrench Gang and Pressman already has Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman in line to direct their own adaptation of the novel. The theme of both projects is eco-terrorism and according to Pressman the two storylines seem to bear uncomfortable similarities.
Both scripts reportedly feature efforts to destroy a dam with a boatful of homemade fertilizer bombs, made by beer swilling former American soldiers. Time and a court judgment will tell whether or not real life legal woes will frustrate the plans of The Social Network star.
