“We…want…mon-ey. Give…us…mon-ey”

“Chicago” producer Marty Richards today filed a $10 million suit against Harvey and Bob Weinstein
over – what else? – “Chicago” profits.

Of course, this is becoming a habit for Harvey: A producer oversees a nice little hit movie that wins the Best Picture Oscar, and the producer finds he’s a little light when it comes time to get paid – essentially a sequel to the financial mess of “The English Patient.”

Should be interesting to see how the “kinder, gentler Harvey” handles this: With magnanimous liberality, or brutal, ‘I’ll-crush-you-like-a-bug!’ rage.

In the words of Billy Flynn, “This trial…the whole world…it’s all…show business.” Stay tuned.
