Tyler Perry Lawsuit: Perry Jacked Temptation From Me

Published

on

A Gary, Indiana screenwriter is suing Tyler Perry, claiming that the director stole his script and used it to make his latest film, Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

William James filed a lawsuit on Wednesday claiming that Temptation is the same story line as James’ 2009 script, Lovers Kill. According to the lawsuit, both films are based on a married couple, where the wife is tempted by another man, which then leads to an affair. Let’s be honest, infidelity in a movie isn’t exactly a new idea.

In the lawsuit, William claims to have given a copy of his script to Perry’s friend, who is also an associate of Oprah Winfrey, hoping it would get into Tyler’s hands. But, there is a strong possibility Perry never actually read the screenplay.

William is reportedly suing for unspecified damages, and is asking for Temptation to be re-edited so that the opening and closing credits include “Based on the Novel ‘Lovers Kill’ by William James.”

HipHollywood reached out to Tyler Perry’s camp, so far no word back.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
