James Franco

Bukowski lawsuit filed

4 Jul, 2014

The actor is being sued by Cyril Humphris for stealing his idea for the upcoming movie, Bukowski. ¬†Franco claims the movie is from his own mind and he wrote it from inspiration given by Cyril’s earlier works. Cyril states that the film

borrows the novel’s themes of childhood loneliness; adolescent self-consciousness; the failures, hypocrisy, and cruelty of adults; and, in an unflinching depiction, the crude interest teenage boys take in sex.

James has asked for the lawsuit thrown out of court.
