The lucrative film franchise has made hundreds of millions of dollars in profits, so it”s no wonder that other projects are looking to stem off of “The Twilight Saga”s” success.
However, Lionsgate Films and Summit Entertainment (the movie”s distributors) are allegedly trying to keep the lid closed on one of these upcoming possibilities.
Behind the Lines Productions has filed a lawsuit against the original film makers after their feature film titled “Twiharder,” was shut down for anticompetitive conduct.
In the documents, the spoof producer”s explain that the flick portrayed hyper-exaggerated caricatures from The Twilight Saga movies and lampooned expressive elements embodied in [the official movies] through imitative reference.
According to the vampire parody company, the project was getting attention from distributors until Lionsgate and Summit sent out a sham cease-and-desist letter, which ultimately left many companies to revoke their offers to deal.”
Behind the Lines Productions is seeking $500 million.
