Fox is getting sued for stealing Kingsman: The Secret Service
February 13, 2018
In the world of Hollywood, a screenwriter is suing Fox for apparently stealing Kingsman: The Secret Service from him, saying it is not based on the Marvel imprint graphic novel but his 2003 screenplay he wrote titled The ‘Keepers’. R. Spencer Balentine claims that he entered his project into a screenwriting contest in 2004 and came in the top 10. The contest was held by Dabel Brothers Productions and in 2006, Dabel and Marvel made an agreement, which is when Balentine claims gave Marvel access to his work. He is suing for over AED 18.3 million, but Fox is yet to reply.
