Halle Berry & Amanda Bynes

Homeless Woman Hijacks L.A. Court System ...

To Pitch TV Show

03-20-14-berry-bynes-hammer-tmzWe've seen desperate attempts to break into Hollywood before, but this is legendary -- an L.A. homeless woman has filed a lawsuit against Halle Berry, Amanda Bynes, Armie Hammer, and Disney ... for the express purpose of pitching them a TV show.

Jo Anne Vandegriff -- who describes herself as homeless -- freely admits the suit is a ploy to get everyone in a room so she can sell her 2,000-page original Civil War romance mini-series, "Heaven's Angels."

Vandegriff describes her script as "an extraordinary work in its length, complexity, and scope, though not yet a masterpiece work."

Vandegriff is targeting Disney because she wants to open up the studio -- which she claims produces lily-white content -- to Black and Hispanic females.

She doesn't apologize for using the legal system to make a buck, because, as she says in the lawsuit, "a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every twenty to thirty years."

So why sue Halle?  Vandegriff wants her in the leading role.  As for Amanda ... it would be a great comeback for her.  And Armie ... he could finally be a leading man (and rid himself of the "Lone Ranger" stink -- that's our take).

And Vandegriff promises her script will help stimulate the economy ... and promote "peace and harmony, health and happiness."

Hollyweird at its finest.
