Hanks sues over unpaid 'My big fat Greek wedding' profits

Tom Hanks is suing production company Gold Circle Films for failing to pay him his share of the profits from hit movie, 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'.

The Saving Private Ryan actor has teamed up with his co-producers from the 2002 film, his wife Rita Wilson and Gary Goetzman, along with leading actress Nia Vardalos, to launch the legal action against Gold Circle.

The firm is accused of reneging on agreements to pay the four stars a share of the $368m (€267m) profits, as stated in their contracts.

The producers claim Gold Circle has so far avoided an audit to specify exact revenue from 'My big fat Greek wedding', instead providing accounts which are "vague and inadequate in failing to provide information consistent with industry standards".

They are suing for unspecified damages.
