Benjamin Bratt is taking legal action against the bosses behind his latest movie LA MISSION over allegations they failed to pay him for his role in the film.
The former Law & Order star appears in the movie - written and directed by his brother Peter - as a father who struggles to come to terms with his son's homosexuality.
Bratt claims he signed a contract with the movie's distribution company, Screen Media Ventures, which would give him and production company 5 Stick Films two bonus payments if the picture did well at the box office.
The movie earned more than $1 million (£666,667) following its release in May (10), but Bratt claims the first payment of $200,000 (£133,333) was late and the company has yet to hand over the second installment of the same amount.
He has now filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles Superior Court in a bid to recoup the cash.
Joseph Kovacs, president of Screen Media, tells Reuters, "There's a disagreement on the guidelines on how to interpret when the film reached certain results."
