Tyler Perry and Jammie foxx sued For $1M Each For Stealing Movie Idea


      Singer /actor Jamie Foxx and Actor /director Tyler Perry are being sued for $1 million each by a prisoner who claims the duo jacked his idea for a groan-worthy new comedy.

  In the Comedy movies, skank robbers ,the pair are starring as lady bank robbers  alongside Martin Lawrence  who are all characters taken from their previous films. Martin will be getting back into his Sheneneh bodysuit , Jamie foxx will be returning as Wanda from Living Colour and Tyler perry will star as his famous Madea.

       TMZ reports that Shamont Lyle Sapp who coincidentally, says he's serving time in Oklahoma for 10 bank robberies filed a lawsuit, claiming he gave Foxx and Perry the idea for the project and they cut him out of the action.According to the docs, Shamont had the idea to unite the three characters in one film , but his version wasn't a comedy about bank robbers , it was a drama about a mental hospital.
       
    "A male white mental patient takes Madea hostage ... He deals with phone calls from the negotiators, as Madea actually pleads for her life in a very sad tear-jerking way ... Her pleas are to be very sad. No jokes at all," the court documents state.
Sapp is also suiing Fox broadcaster and producer David Zuckerman for $4 million in damages.
