Jesse Eisenberg Sues 'Camp Hell' For Overplaying His Cameo Role

Jesse Eisenberg is suing Lionsgate Entertainment for $3 million.

The Oscar-nominated actor is upset the studio is exaggerating his role in 'Camp Hell' to boost sales of the horror film's DVD release.

Eisenberg says he made a five-minute cameo in the film as a favor to friends, but he had no idea that the studio would then use his image to promote the low budget film with his image.

According to the lawsuit, "Eisenberg is bringing this lawsuit in order to warn his fans and the public that, contrary to the manner in which Defendants are advertising the film, Eisenberg is not the star of and does not appear in a prominent role in Camp Hell."

The release's latest DVD cover allegedly features Eisenberg's name with a large photo of Eisenberg's face superimposed on an image of the woods and the film's name.

The widely panned 2010 film centers on a group of Christian school kids who end up being plagued by an evil curse.

Eisenberg is demanding $3 million in damages for misappropriation of right of publicity and unfair business practices -- more than the budget of the film.
