If the fans don't screw you, a lawsuit will.

If I had $250,000 to put into an anime related project it sure wouldn't be a live-action adaptation. Those things are just doomed to failure.

It was probably just a scam anyway and these people have finally had enough to say "show us the movie, or give us back our money". Wink

Yeah, this movie is not happening for sure. Not that I had particularly high hopes for it or anything to begin with.

Anything that disrupts the possibility of this movie ever happening is fine with me.

This looks to be a scam. It has not to do with that possibility.

Goldstein and Ritchie's lawsuit alleges that the e-mail, among other correspondence, is "full of misrepresentations and omissions, and was an attempt to induce the plaintiffs to make loans to Instavision. Instavision was not producing Cowboy Bebop with 20th [Century Fox]."

I believe the term your looking for is "Legalized Extortion."
