Robin Williams Loses $6 Million 'Cop Out' Lawsuit
Funnyman Robin Williams has lost a $6 million legal battle with movie bosses who allegedly hired him as the original star of Bruce Willis' forthcoming film "Cop Out". The comedian sued bosses at Gold Circle Films, claiming he was hired to star in the movie, originally titled "A Couple of Dicks", and was entitled to the fee whether or not it was made.
Gold Circle bosses gave up the rights, acquired by Warner Bros., and Willis was hired for the revamped film. The defendants claimed a "play or pay" fee was not entered in their contract with Williams. The case was dismissed on Thursday morning, February 4.
Though he lost the role in "Cop Out", Robin Williams will be seen portraying John Fischer in upcoming movie "Wedding Banned". In the big screen project, which is scheduled to be released in the U.S. in 2011, the 58-year-old actor will star opposite Anna Faris and Diane Keaton.
