Chalk up another lawsuit for “The Hangover Part II”.
Aspiring screenwriter Michael Alan Rubin has sued Warner Bros. and the filmmakers of the R-rated comedy sequel for copyright infringement, defamation, fraud, and other charges reports EW.
Rubin’s marriage to a Japanese woman fell apart during his honeymoon in 2008 and he turned his adventures into the screenplay “Mickey and Kirin”.
In the suit Rubin claims the film “is copied from the treatment … and also from the real life incident of the Plaintiff, because the protagonist in Hangover-2 travels from the United States to an Asian country to marry his Asian girlfriend.”
Rubin also targets his ex-wife for giving the filmmakers his story and goes on to accuse them of defaming him.
