A screenwriter is suing them because he claims that his original screenplay was stolen and re-purposed for the 2011 "Mission Impossible" film. Timothy Patrick McLanahan claims that the 1998 screenplay called "head On" was submitted to William Morris Agency, however, he never heard anything back. McLanahan claims that the film was sent to CAA where it was used to make the movie.

McLanahan claims that when he went to see the "Mission Impossible" movie he knew the story as soon as he sat down because it was his. In the legal documents, McLanahan did not offer any examples of similarities to his script and that of "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol."

What do you think? Is this guy just trying to get rich quick or was the "Mission Impossible" script stolen?
