Bruce Willis Tagged for Walking Off Movie Set

LOS ANGELES (CN) - A trio of film distribution and finance companies have filed a $4 million complaint against actor Bruce Willis for allegedly "abruptly and without notice" walking off the set of a film called "Three Stories About Joan."

Foresight Unlimited, Signature Entertainment Group and Three Stories Productions claimed in a complaint filed in Superior Court that Willis, who was supposed to direct and act in the film, walked out last September for personal reasons just three days after signing an agreement with the companies.

The agreement called for the plaintiffs to secure up to $20 million in financing for the film and then distribute it. The movie was to be produced by Willis Brothers Films, through producers David Willis and Stepen Eads.

The complaint was filed by Henry Gradstein of Gradstein & Luskin.
