Brody's grievance? Brother was never paid for his role, apparently; he negotiated a $640,000 salary to appear in the film, but the producers apparently managed to talk him into taking a deferred payment, in exchange for him being able to refuse the rights for his image to be used in the film until he was paid, effectively rendering the film unreleasable without his say-so. Cut to a couple of years later, Brody says he still hasn't been paid, and the Italian producers are apparently putting it out anyway. Brody's lawsuit hopes to stop the U.S. DVD sales, but that seems unlikely to happen. Hopefully he can get some money for his work, though.
So is Adrien Brody a huge sucker, or are these Italian guys master con-men, or what?
