Did Paul W.S. Anderson steal his Death Race idea from another car racing and crashing movie? But more importantly, aren't all car movies since the 90s a little similar, anyway? Writer Adam Stone is filing a lawsuit against the director and producers of Death Race, claiming they stole the idea from a film called Joust, which he pitched to both Anderson and Jeremy Bolt. Stone is even going as far trying to get a court order to stop the film from coming out this Friday. Strange, I don't remember any dueling ostriches in Death Race. Universal has declined comment on the lawsuit. [The Hollywood Reporter]
