LOS ANGELES (CN) - A producer of Christian movies says a Hollywood distributor has been selling its movies abroad, even though a foreign sales agreement was terminated more than two years ago.
Gener8xion Entertainment says in Superior Court that it fired Media 8 Entertainment for violating two agreements for the movies "One Night With the King" and "Noelle."
The producer says the last time Media 8 paid distribution fees for "One Night With The King" was more than three years ago. And Media 8 has not paid a penny for "Noelle" since the spring of 2009, according to the complaint.
Gener8xion says that it decided to exercise its right to terminate the agreements in early 2010.
"These terminations were based on, inter alia, Media 8's failures to reach the applicable minimum sales figures under both agreements, render statements and accountings to GNXE in a timely manner, pay over to GNXE amounts owed as a result of foreign sales made and amounts collected," the lawsuit states, abbreviating Gener8xion.
Even after the producer terminated the agreements, Media 8 still sold and collected revenues for "One Night With The King" in Spain and other foreign markets, according to the lawsuit.
Media 8 has financed, produced and distributed several movies, including Academy Award-winner "Monster" and "The Upside of Anger."
Gener8xion is represented by Richard Towne of Westlake Village, Calif., and seeks at least $100,000 in damages for breach of contract, money had and received, accounting and fraudulent transfer.
Media 8 president Stewart Hall is also a named defendant.
Neither Towne nor Media 8 immediately responded to requests for comment.
