(MENAFN -Arab News) LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has been sued by screenwriter Timothy Patrick McLanahan for 1 billion, for supposedly plagiarizing the script of his 2011 flick, “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” which is Tom’s highest-grossing film. According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, McLanahan has claimed that he came up with the concept of the movie when he wrote the screenplay titled “Head On” in 1998.McLanahan has alleged that after submitting the script to the US Copyright Office, “Head On” received a copyright certificate protecting its material and author from unauthorized use.McLanahan asserted that he immediately recognized the scripts for the 51-year-old actor’s movie had been illegally written and produced from his 1998 copyright.Along with Cruise, McLanahan has also filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures and talent agency William Morris Agency, which supposedly forwarded his script without his knowledge to Cruise’s rep Creative Artist Agency.In the court papers, McLanahan said he had originally sent his script to the William Morris Agency only to have it turned it down.“I was told by the agency that they could not use the script as a movie,” he writes.He claims they then “shopped the script around the world” without his permission and passed it on to Creative Artist Agency (CAA), who represent Cruise.The film took nearly 700 million at the worldwide box office, going on to earn more from DVD and Blu-ray sales.“Because the Ghost Protocol film generated close to 1 billion, I am asking for this amount in damages,” said McLanahan in the court papers.
