Kevin Costner has sued the producers of the 1991 blockbuster ‘Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves’ – 21 years after it came out.
The Oscar-winning actor claims that he has not received the agreed slice of the profits from the film which has made £250 million in box office receipts.

Actor Kevin Costner accused the film company, Morgan Creek, of diverting money by assigning foreign distribution rights on Robin Hood from Morgan Creek to a company owned by Morgan Creek. He also claimed that he had received no financial statements from Morgan Creek partners in 2010 or 2011 and that the statements were late from 2004 to 2009. Costner’s complaint specifically alleged claims for breach of contract, breach of implied covenant of good faith, and fraudulent concealment. The case reached a confidential settlement in August 2014 right before trial was scheduled.
