Hanks slaps Gold Circle with big fat lawsuit

Tom Hanks is suing Gold Circle Films for failing to pay him his share of the profits from the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Hanks has teamed up with his co-producers of the film- his wife Rita Wilson, Gary Goetzman, and leading actress Nia Vardalos, to start legal action against Gold Circle.

The production company is accused of reneging on agreements to pay the four stars a share of the $368 million profits, as stated in their contracts.

The producer claim Gold Circle has avoided an audit to specify exact revenue from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, instead providing accounts which are "vague and inadequate in failing to provide information consistent with industry standards." They are suing for unspecified damages.
