A man named John Franco, who claims himself to be a special effects worker for the film Green Lantern, has filed a lawsuit against the Warner Bros. and other companies involved in the production of the film. Franco says he was severely injured by effects work gone wrong and is now seeking unspecified damages.
In the lawsuit filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, April 6, John Franco claims that an accident happened during the filming of Green Lantern on Louisiana sets last July. And the accident caused him to suffer numerous internal and external injuries, severe fright, shock, pain, discomfort and anxiety.
However, John Franco filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. Entertainment, Warner Bros. Pictures Group, DC Comics and South Bay EFX Inc for negligence, peculiar risk, ultrahazardous activity and loss of consortium. He is seeking unspecified damages.
