The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg’s new movie Night Moves could be halted after producers Edward R Pressman
Film claim the forthcoming project is too similar to Edward Abbey’s novel, The Monkey Wrench Gang.
Shooting on the thriller — which stars Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard — is due to begin next month but a lawsuit filed by American Psycho producers demands work on the project should be stopped, said The Hollywood Reporter.
“By way of Example only, both works feature the targeting of a dam for destruction by means of ammonium fertiliser-laden boats. In the novel, the principal bomb-maker is a beer-guzzling veteran who served overseas as a Green Beret, where he acquired
his knowledge of explosives,” the lawsuit states.
