Hugh Grant Movie "A Rip Off"


A British scriptwriter is suing the makers of hit movie NOTTING HILL for a whopping $15 million (10 million) - claiming they nabbed his ideas.

NICK VILLIERS is pointing the finger of blame at ex-colleague ERIC FELLNER, boss of Los Angeles film makers WORKING TITLE FILMS.

Villiers and Fellner were bosom buddies until the comedy about a bookseller's romance with a film star - starring HUGH GRANT and JULIA ROBERTS - was released last year (99).

The aggravated writer claims the plot was similar to ideas they had discussed.
