Los Angeles Times – Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, producers of Warner Bros.’ and Sony Pictures’ May release ”Terminator Salvation,” have filed a pair of $30-million lawsuits: One against Santa Barbara hedge fund Pacificor, which lent them money to buy the rights to the science-fiction film series, and another against a former employee of Pacificor who helped arrange the loans.
The suits come as Halcyon Co., which is owned by Anderson and Kubicek, has been attempting to raise money to continue operating, according to several people familiar with the situation. The duo also are developing a fifth ”Terminator” film, two sources said.
If they don’t prevail in the suit or raise enough money to pay back Pacificor, however, they may not get the chance to make another movie. According to the complaints, the hedge fund may end up taking control of the ”Terminator” rights, which served as collateral for its loans.
