Sylvester Stallone being Sued over "The Expendales" script

Sylvester Stallone was accused of copying another writer's screenplay to make "The Expendables," a movie about mercenaries hired to defeat a military dictator.
The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court on Tuesday by writer Marcus Webb, who said the screenplay for "The Expendables" is "strikingly similar and in some places identical" to his work, "The Cordoba Caper."
Webb seeks unspecified damages for copyright infringement and an order from the court stopping further infringement in any sequel by Stallone, his credited coauthor David Callaham, Millennium Films, its Nu Image Films unit and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.
Stallone's publicist, Michelle Bega, declined to comment, as did an attorney for Millennium Films.
