This is a bit of a weird one, I have to admit, and I don’t really know where to start. A homeless woman in Los Angeles has filed an insane lawsuit against a bunch of Hollywood stars including Amanda Bynes, Halle Berry, Armie Hammer and the entire Disney corporation… just to get them all into a courtroom so they’ll listen to her idea for a script. WHAT?
Let’s let TMZ explain…
Jo Anne Vandegriff — who describes herself as homeless — freely admits the suit is a ploy to get everyone in a room so she can sell her 2,000-page original Civil War romance mini-series, “Heaven’s Angels.”
Vandegriff describes her script as “an extraordinary work in its length, complexity, and scope, though not yet a masterpiece work.”
Vandegriff is targeting Disney because she wants to open up the studio — which she claims produces lily-white content — to Black and Hispanic females.
She doesn’t apologize for using the legal system to make a buck, because, as she says in the lawsuit, “a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every twenty to thirty years.”
So why sue Halle? Vandegriff wants her in the leading role. As for Amanda … it would be a great comeback for her. And Armie … he could finally be a leading man (and rid himself of the “Lone Ranger” stink — that’s our take).
And Vandegriff promises her script will help stimulate the economy … and promote “peace and harmony, health and happiness.”
Again, California’s legal system is a complete joke and we know it, but how is this even going to make it to court? How is this a real thing that isn’t just thrown out immediately for being absolutely ridiculous? WHAT IS HAPPENING IN LOS ANGELES?
Also, I feel particularly bad for Amanda here. She’s just getting her life together and then some asshole wants to pull her back into a load of bullshit. Ugh.
