Actor Tom Hanks is suing the production company involved with 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' for failure to pay him his share of the profits from the 2002 hit movie. The 'Forrest Gump' actor has teamed up with his co-producers from the film--his wife Rita Wilson and Gary Goetzman--along with leading actress of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Nia Vardalos, to launch legal action for unspecified damages against the production company, Gold Circle Films.
The company is accused of reneging on agreements to pay the four a share of the $368 million profits, as stated in their contracts, reports Hollywood.com. Gold Circle has so far avoided an audit to specify exact revenue from 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding', instead providing accounts that are "vague and inadequate in failing to provide information consistent with industry standards."
