Actor Bruce Willis is being sued by three production companies for USD 4 million for allegedly breaching a contract to direct a movie.
A law suit was filed today in L A County Superior Court against the actor and his production company by Foresight Unlimited, Signature Entertainment Group and Three Stories Productions.
The companies claim that the actor had signed a deal to direct a movie called "Three Stories about Joan" starring Owen Wilson and Camilla Belle, tmz.Com reported.
The lawsuit says, "Willis abruptly and without notice terminated his services as director for personal reasons and walked off the set."
The "Die Hard" actor was signed on USD 196,404 for directing the film which was budgeted at USD 20 million.
Meanwhile, Willis' legal representative, Marty Singer has termed the suit as "absurd" saying the movie collapsed because the producers didn't have the money to pay anyone.
Singer said that Willis will sue the producers for the fee they promised.
