FOX, Guillermo del Toro Sued, 'Shape of Water' Ripped Off My Famous Dad's Play (UPDATE)


3:15 PM PT — FOX tells us, “These claims from Mr. Zindel’s estate are baseless, wholly without merit and we will be filing a motion to dismiss. Furthermore, the estate’s complaint seems timed to coincide with the Academy Award voting cycle in order to pressure our studio to quickly settle. Instead, we will vigorously defend ourselves and, by extension, this groundbreaking and original film.”The Shape of Water” doesn’t deserve a Best Picture Oscar, it deserves one for Best Ripoff … according to the family of a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright.
