Rob Schneider and his brother/producing partner John have been sued by investors over issues relating to financing for the film "The Chosen One," a 2010 direct-to-dvd dramatic feature starring and directed by the former "Saturday Night Live" comedian.
Courthouse News reports that the plaintiffs, George and Nancy Gamble, insist that they put $1.5 million into post-production costs for the movie, and that investment was never returned. They accuse the Schneiders of using the money for "unrelated, improper and/or personal purposes."
Strangely, this is not the first lawsuit resulting from the financial troubles of "The Chosen One." In 2008, the Schneiders were sued for $350,000 by producer Bob Rubin after he claimed they failed to pay him his agreed fee for securing financing for the movie.
