TYLER PERRY AND JAMIE FOXX SUED BY PRISONER/SCREENWRITER FOR STEALING SCRIPT IDEA
Convicted bank robber Shamont Lyle Sapp is suing Tyler Perry and Jamie Foxx over what he claims is his movie idea. Skank Robbers is the story of Wanda (Jamie Foxx from In Living Color) and Sheneneh (Martin) as bank robbers and all the tomfoolery that comes attached to that. Of course with men running around as women, Madea (Tyler Perry) is set to make an appearance. The problem is that Shamont says this is his story. Shamont is currently in jail, serving time for bank robbery. He’s saying he gave the idea to Jaime Foxx and Tyler Perry, but in his version the characters are together in a mental institution. Check out who else he’s suing inside According to TMZ he is also suing Fox Broadcasting and David Zuckerman (each for $1million). So in total the bank robber is asking for $4milli. I don’t know about this one Shamont. In case you don’t remember the preview they showed at the BET Awards a few years back, here it is.
