The Saving Private Ryan actor has teamed up with his co-producers from the 2002 film--his wife Rita Wilson and Gary Goetzman--along with leading actress Nia Vardalos, to launch the legal action against Gold Circle.
The company is accused of reneging on agreements to pay the four stars a share of the $368 million profits, as stated in their contracts.
The producers claim Gold Circle has so far avoided an audit to specify exact revenue from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, instead providing accounts that are "vague and inadequate in failing to provide information consistent with industry standards."
They are suing for unspecified damages.
