Filmmaker brothers Allen and Albert Hughes have been hit with a copyright lawsuit over their hit Denzel Washington movie The Book Of Eli.
Georgia-based writer Bridgette Burgin has accused the directors of stealing the movie's premise from her unpublished work The Final Call after she submitted 10 chapters of the book into a Writers Digest contest.
Burgin claims that judges, who screened the manuscripts, were allowed to hold on to the works after the competition and she alleges two of them then supplied her project to Gary Whitta, The Book of Eli screenwriter.
Burgin is now seeking damages for injury to her professional reputation and diminution of her intellectual property since there were more than 50 similarities between the two works.
According to AllHipHop.com, Burgin is also asking for a temporary order to ban further distribution of the film.
