Michael Moore Sues Weinsteins

That's right. Michael Moore is suing the dude's that brought you the Matrix and and a whole slew of other less impressive films.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the story of Moore's lawsuit which claims Harvey and Bob Weinstein (along with their Fellowship Adventure Group) cheated him out of at least $2.7 million dollars. According to the suit, the two sides agreed to split the profits of Moore's 2004 Fahrenheit 9/11 50-50.

This is quite a story considering the Weinsteins have been behind most of his major theatrical films.

The whole story in all its complexity is over at The Hollywood Reporter, but my question is, will Moore make a film about this? Come on, you know you'd be curious to get a first person perspective of how lawsuits play out.
