Elizabeth Banks has been sued by a writer who claims she stole his script for her new comedy Walk of Shame. TMZ reports that Dan Rosen filed suit claiming that he pitched an idea for a film to Banks and her husband Max Handelman back in 2007, titled Darci's Walk of Shame. Rosen claims that the film was distinctly familiar to Banks' latest film and that he gave them his script but never heard from them again, leading him to believe that they took it and made it into their own film.
Rosen notes that the films have similar characters and plot, the latter involving a blonde woman in her thirties who goes through a breakup, gets drunk and has a one-night stand with a younger man, then has to get to an important event wearing an inappropriate outfit from the night before.
He's suing for $500,000 as well as all profits from the film.
