Robin Williams

Loses 'A Couple of Dicks'

2/4/2010 4:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Robin WilliamsRobin Williams just lost a $6 million lawsuit over the movie "Cop Out" -- formerly titled "A Couple of Dicks."

Williams had sued Gold Circle Films, claiming he was hired to star in the flick and was entitled to a $6 million fee whether the movie was made or not. Gold Circle pulled the plug on the movie and eventually gave up the rights. Warner Bros. ended up producing the movie with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan.

Gold Circle claimed it never had a contract with Williams and never guaranteed him a "play or pay" fee. The judge agreed and tossed the case this morning on a summary judgment motion.

The lawsuit was filed by Williams' company, Fiat Risus, Inc.

The lawyers for Gold Circle, Michael Holtz and Marty Singer, call the case a "meritless lawsuit" and tell TMZ they will ask the court for attorney's fees and court costs.

Williams rep could not be reached for comment.

Why don't you stay on your "fair and balanced" neo-nazi Foxs News channel and stay off the "liberal hollywood" sites. Talk about a hypocrite.

Better Than You    

I love Robin Williams and think he is insanely funny, especially in stand-up comedy.

But what the hell has happened to his thought process when coming to choosing films? Cop Out?! Old Dogs?! Damn dude. What happened to the awesome Robin of Good Morning Vietnam? or Good Will Hunting? or Awakenings?

Does he even read the script before agreeing to projects anymore? Geez!

Bawahahahaha!!! Now the Neo-Nazis are calling others "Neo-Nazis!!" Classic!!! Like the old adage goes, you always know a Liberal's true intentions by whatever they accuse you of.

And just like a Nazi, you are trying to control where I go and what I say. Sorry douche, but the truth is getting out and we're not sitting back and allowing you Neo-Comms to lie anymore!!

That's too bad Robin lost the case. I wonder what Ethel Merman, Arnold S., Bart Simpson, Walter Brennan, Sarah Palin and Charlie Brown would have to say about that.
