Anderson Rape Charge Dismissed

7 October 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rape charges against Barbershop star Anthony Anderson have been dismissed. A woman seeking a job as an extra on the set of the actor's movie Hustle And Flow in Memphis, Tennessee, claimed Anderson and director Wayne Witherspoon attacked her in a trailer on the set. The unnamed plaintiff also alleged she had forced sex with both men over a period of several days before the reported rape took place in July . But in court yesterday, a Tennessee judge said the accuser's testimony did not produce probable cause to let the charges stand and that the woman's testimony was the most "incredulous" he had ever heard. The two men refused to comment when they left the preliminary hearing. Anderson still faces another lawsuit in Los Angeles by a woman who claims the actor sexually assaulted her on the set of his cancelled TV series All About The Andersons. »

State Street Pictures has set up a script for a half-hour comedy at ABC with Sony Pictures Television on board to produce. Titled Neighbors, the project chronicles the culture clash between two multigenerational black families from different tax brackets living in the suburbs. Jay Dyer (All About the Andersons) is attached as writer. Executive producers are State Street principals George Tillman Jr. and Robert Teitel, the team behind the Barbershop films. This is their first entry into the broadcast business, but they have already made inroads into television at Showtime, where they produced Soul Food and the upcoming TV adaptation of Barbershop with John Ridley attached to write the script. Up next in theaters from State Street is Roll Bounce, which recently wrapped shooting for Fox 2000 Pictures. The deal was brokered by CAA and Principato-Young. »

Anderson Faced with Second Sexual Assault Charge

17 September 2004 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Kangaroo Jack star Anthony Anderson's troubles are starting to pile up - he's facing a sexual assault lawsuit only months after being charged with rape. The chubby actor was still reeling from the cancellation of his sitcom All About The Andersons in July when an extra on the set of his movie Hustle & Flow hit him with rape charges. And now Anderson and Warner Bros Television bosses have been named in a $900,000 suit by a woman who claims Anderson made suggestive comments, grabbed her genitalia and sexually assaulted her in his dressing room on the All About The Andersons set. A spokesman for the star, who celebrates his 10th wedding anniversary next year, is confident the actor will be "completely exonerated" when "all the facts come out". »
