Kevin Costner sues Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves producers


The actor Kevin Costner is suing the producers of the 1991 movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves for allegedly hiding his share of the film's profits from him for the past two years.

The film earned more than $390m at the box office worldwide, and has made "tens of millions more" from DVD sales and television screenings, according to the court papers.

James Robinson, the chief executive of the producers Morgan Creek, told the Hollywood Reporter: "We have paid him over $40m. I think we've been very nice to him."
