Cars 2

A British screen­writer has sought an injunc­tion in United States Dis­trict Court to pre­vent Cars 2 from leav­ing the lot.

Jake Mandeville-Anthony filed the claim this week. He’s suing Dis­ney and Pixar, charg­ing that the 2006 block­buster Cars and its sequel — which is slated for the­atri­cal release June 24 — are par­tially based on work he sub­mit­ted in the early 1990s.

Man­dev­ille states that he cre­ated two screen­plays: Cookie & Co., a three-parter about real-life adven­ture race car dri­ver Michael Owen Perkins, who won a 1988 race, and Cars, which included 46 ani­mated car char­ac­ter descrip­tions, 10 cars char­ac­ter sketches, a treat­ment, a sam­ple screen­play, and a mar­ket­ing and mer­chan­dis­ing plan.
