Gerard Butler Sues Over ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ Profits

In a lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Gerard Butler alleges being owed at least $10 million from the success of Olympus Has Fallen, the 2013 blockbuster about an a*sault on the White House.

Butler brings a fraud claim with the a*sertion that defendants Nu Image, Millennium Media and Padre Nuestro Productions never intended to pay him net profits. The film has grossed about $170 million worldwide, yet he says he hasn’t seen a penny in net profits, with an audit of accounting statements raising flags in multiple areas on the revenue side, both domestically and foreign.

The actor nods to how the producers are currently f*ghting with the DGA over pension payments and states that Nu Image and Millennium are deducting residuals never paid out.

The suit also attacks a “comprehensive, premeditated scheme” to allegedly hide money and deprive Butler of net profits with word of agreements with distributors structured so that not all gross receipts have to be reported. The case is being handled by attorneys at Greenberg Glusker.

Millennium didn’t immediately comment about the suit.

man is on hard times having to publicly go after a production company about "movie profits" on a Extra "Mid" movie.

10 mill isn't necessarily small, but its also not an amount that cant be settled upon in mediation.

he played the normal Gerard Butler role and told someone in a menacing aussie accent to bend to his will as he does in all his movies....

and the studio told him to fu*k off because the last movie about "Olympus" and all the other movies in the series have been money losers and received poorly in reception each release.

Similar to Scarlett he sees the end (of their ability to cash big checks) is near and it makes sense at this point to get what you can how you can. Both opinions based on conjecture

The movie was okay, but if he was not paid according to the contract he has, then I hope he win his lawsuit.
