Nic Cage Sued

in Bloodsucker Lawsuit

6/30/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A big Hollywood movie producer has apparently been grousing that Nic Cage stiffed him on a vampire film years ago, and now he's filed a lawsuit to settle the score.

Early Bird Productions, the movie company that produced "Shadow of the Vampire" back in 2000 claims in a new lawsuit that Paul Brooks -- whose producer credits include "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" -- was owed at least $77,176 for his services and Nic was obligated to pay. 

The suit alleges Nic never anted up the dough, so 11 years after the movie was made, Early Bird is asking a judge to make things right.

Has Early Bird ever heard the expression, "Get in line?"

No comment so far from Nic's camp.

I'd think the statue of limitation on a brach of contract claim doesn't last 11 years.

I call BS. If you were genuinely owed that much money, why would you wait 11 years to try and collect? The statute of Lamentations has to have run out by now, plus Nic wouldn't have been personally responsible for it, anyway. Sounds like the guy is just in need of money and trying to get his name in the media.

Cage is a very hard working A list actor.

He is to be admired IMO.

But Will Fichtner was amazing in Drive Angry.

All I kept thinking in every Accountant scene was "Billy 'The Kid' Fichtner, stealing the show!!!"

After Armageddon I knew this guy was a Hollywood rock.
