CHASING AMY star Jason Mewes is being sued by a documentary filmmaker after pulling out of a project about heroin addiction.

Mewes agreed to be filmed shooting heroin and then going through recovery in CRAIG VEYTIA's (corr) ROCK BOTTOM: FROM HELL TO REDEMPTION but then tried to stop the release of the film after best pal KEVIN SMITH suggested the documentary could damage his reputation.

Veytia has gone to court to ask for authorities' permission to release his film, citing two signed agreements he has from Mewes.

Mewes plans to argue he wasn't in the right mental state to agree to the project.
