(LOS ANGELES) -- There's a claim that The Hangover Part II took its inspiration from the story of an American who says he wrote a script charting what he calls his Asian adventures, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Michael Rubin is representing himself in a federal suit against Warner Bros.
According to the report, Rubin married a Japanese woman in Japan in 2007 and they honeymooned in Thailand and India where he encountered financial difficulties. In India, Rubin claims he met a producer in Bollywood who gave him work in several movies. Rubin says he then wrote a script entitled Mickey and Kirin, and submitted a copy to the Writers Guild of America.
Rubin says he later heard from a Hollywood friend about the movie Hangover II, which features several Americans experiencing mishaps in Asia on the way to a wedding.
Rubin is suing for copyright infringement, misappropriation of his publicity rights, and defamation.
