Michael Moore Sues Weinstein Brothers For 2.7 Million Bucks of ‘Fahrenheit 9/11′ Cash

Wow. Michael Moore has filed suit against film moguls Harvey and Bob Weinstein, alleging that the brothers used “bogus accounting methods” to hide huge sums of money the filmmaker was due from his film Fahrenheit 9/11. TMZ got a hold of the suit, which was filed today in LA Superior Court. Among Moore’s juicier charges: one Weinstein brother secretively took a private jet to Europe on Moore’s dime.

Moore is asking for $2.7 million.

Fahrenheit 9/11 is the top grossing documentary of all-time, earning a whopping $220 million-plus at the box office.
