John Singleton Settles Hustle and Flow Lawsuit with Paramount Pictures
Black Enterprise Magazine January-March 2019 Issue

John Singleton has settled his $20 million Hustle and Flow lawsuit against Paramount Pictures.

The filmmaker sued the movie studio in 2011 for breach of contract. Singleton and his Crunk Pictures production company claimed that Paramount Pictures reneged on their part of a contract which stipulated that Paramount would fund two additional pictures in exchange for the rights to Hustle and Flow.

The settlement was for an undisclosed amount.

Even though a settlement has been reached, check out to find out why Paramount had previously not ponied up the cash.
