Sued For 'Walk of Shame'

Elizabeth Banks Sued Walk of Shame
Elizabeth Banks
may be taking her own walk of shame -- into a federal courthouse, that is -- 'cause she just got sued for allegedly ripping off a script for her latest movie, "Walk of Shame."

Dan Rosen claims he pitched the idea for a movie called "Darci's Walk of Shame" to Banks and her producer husband Max Handelman during a 3-hour meeting in 2007.  

According to the lawsuit, after Rosen gave Banks and Handleman his script ... he never heard from them again.

Rosen says there are too many similarities between Banks' movie -- which came out May 2 -- and his story to be coincidental.

He says both works share similar characters and plot  -- both are about a pretty blonde in her 30s who goes through a breakup, gets drunk and has a one-night stand with a younger man, then has to get to an important event wearing an inappropriate outfit from the night before.

In other words ... it's like every other rom-com script in Hollywood.

Rosen is suing for at least $500k ... PLUS all the profits from the movie.

Dan has a VERY good case. The failed Kickstarter for Darci's Walk of Shame still has the video up on Youtube and Paula Hart basically outlined the same exact story.

Hahaha. Good luck dude. The movie is like every other dumb female based comedy out there. Nothing original about it plus is anyone even going to see this movie? His share of the profits will be about $3.00 based on how few people are bothering to see it.
