Jim Wilson was a producer on several of the actor’s most successful films, including ‘Dances With Wolves,’ ‘The Bodyguard’ and ‘Wyatt Earp.’
Kevin Costner is suing former business partner Jim Wilson for $15 million for allegedly refusing to sign over his rights in a company the Yellowstone star is trying to wind down.
TIG had a first-look deal with Warner Bros., and Costner’s lawyers helped him form another entity that would act as a holding company for projects outside of the Warners deal and be a Writers Guild signatory.
According to the complaint filed Tuesday in L. A. County Superior Court, Costner has been the sole director and officer of the company since 2015 and Wilson hasn’t had any involvement with Good Ones since at least 2004.
He’s suing Lopez for breach of fiduciary duty and conversion, and is also seeking the return of a $1 million loan to Good Ones Productions, plus interest.
