Larry Gordon Sends Letter To District Court Judge In 'Watchmen' Dispute

In a rather unorthodox move, veteran producer Larry Gordon has sent a letter to US District Court Judge Gary Feess blaming Fox and his previous lawyers for getting him into the 'Watchmen' mess that has now put the movie's release in jeopardy.

This after Feess' decision ruled that Gordon did not secure proper rights to 'Watchmen' from Fox before shopping the same project and selling it to Warner Bros.

In the letter, Gordon defends his actions during the negotiations: "It is Mr. Gordon's position that the execution of the 1994 turnaround agreement (which did not allow him to shop the project elsewhere) was the result of either a mutual mistake by both parties or a unilateral mistake made by his counsel, on which Mr. Gordon relied."

There are reports that settlement discussions are heating up, so there may still be hope for the movie to be released without delay if an agreement can be reached by within the next couple of weeks.

However, Judge Feess has refused to read the letter, calling it an 'improper communication' in violation of court rules.
