Man Claims ‘Hangover Part II’ Stole from His Life Story
Michael Alan Rubin claims he had the story of a lifetime and he wanted to keep it all for himself...well know his story is that ‘The Hangover Part II’ was stolen from a screenplay he wrote about his disastrous honeymoon in Thailand. Come on, everyone knows a screenplay is still keeping it a secret.
Rubin is now suing Warner Bros. for an unspecified amount of money, claiming the sordid tale is his.
According to Rubin, he married a Japanese woman in 2007. However, she dumped him after learning of his true financial state while on their honeymoon.
Rubin claims that producers of ‘The Hangover Part II’ lifted elements of his screenplay for their flick.
“The production of ‘Hangover II’ is not a complete ‘literary’ or ‘artistic’ works of the Hangover Defendants as credited in ‘Hangover II,’” Rubin, who’s representing himself, writes in the complaint. “In fact, the production of ‘Hangover II’ was a result of infringement of the Plaintiff’s treatment ‘Mickey and Kirin’ and exploitation of the private real life of Plaintiff in an insulting manner.”
As for what ‘insulted” Rubin, apparently he is miffed that the film suggested he (as Ed Helms’ character) had sex with a transgendered prostitute. Maybe this is the true reason he wanted it to be a secret.. [see below]
