Twilight Saga Parody Producers Suing Summit Entertainment for $500 Million

May 31, 2013

Twilight Saga parody producers are going big in their lawsuit against Summit Entertainment. See details below:


Behind the Lines Productions is suing Summit, as well as overseer Lionsgate Entertainment, for wrongfully terminating its feature-length movie, Twiharder. In a lawsuit — that’s 219 pages long by the way — Behind the Lines accuses Lionsgate-Summit of making “anti-competitive conduct.” Twiharder “portrayed hyper-exaggerated caricatures from The Twilight Saga movies and lampooned expressive elements embodied in Defendants’ pre-existing works through imitative reference.”

To sum up, the larger company sent a “sham” cease-and-desist notice, ruining Behind the Lines’ production as well as their relationships with distributors and insurers who revoked their offers after Summit’s interruption. So they’re asking for $500 million(!) in damages.
