Robin Williams

Hollywood star Robin Williams has lost a $6 million legal battle against movie bosses of the film

Cop Out

. The Academy Award winning actor had sued bosses at


Gold Circle Films, claiming he was hired as the original star of Bruce Willis' forthcoming film

Cop Out

, but the case has been dismissed, reported

Ace Showbiz

.



The 58-year-old actor claimed that the film was originally titled

A Couple of Dicks

and he 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 the 'Jumanji' star. Though he lost the role in

Cop Out

, 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 actor will star opposite Anna Faris and Diane Keaton.
