John Singleton has filed suit against Paramount, claiming the studio reneged on promises made in its deal to acquire Hustle & Flow, THR reports. Singleton, who produced Craig Brewer’s 2005 breakout indie hit, alleges that Paramount had committed to backing two additional feature-film projects from the filmmaker, but followed through. He’s seeking $20 million in damages.
