Jet Li gets Sued

UPI and The Star are both reporting on a lawsuit that's been filed against Jet Li and the writer of "Fearless." The Grandson of the real person on which the main character of the movie is based is suing because the movie defames his grandfather. He claims that many details of the life of his grandfather were falsified to make him look worse. No word on damages being sought.

True stories are routinely tweaked to make them more dramatic. This seems to me to be a cash grab. Either that or they forgot to pay him in the first place. --Terrence Ryan
