Stallone Delivers Knock Out in Entertainment Lawsuit


Sylvester Stallone recently proved that he can win battles on screen and in the courtroom. He won a dismissal in a New York copyright infringement lawsuit filed by a writer claiming to be the real mastermind behind Stallone’s popular film, The Expendables.

Writer Marcus Webb filed the lawsuit in a New York federal court. He claimed the screenplay for The Expendables, a movie about mercenaries hired to defeat a military dictator, was “strikingly similar and in some places identical” to his work entitled The Cordoba Caper.
