Friday the 13th producer and co-creator Sean Cunningham is suing distributors Warner and Paramount. Cunningham claims that the studios have "systematically misaccounted" how much the money the slasher franchise has made over the decades.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cunningham has filed the complaint in Los Angeles Superior Court. He states that Warner and Paramount have been guilty of what is commonly known "Hollywood accounting." This is where a studio claims a movie has made far less money than it actually has by deducting additional fees and under-reporting elements like merchandising and TV revenue. As a result, profit participants, such as producers, get paid less when the movie goes into profit. Cunningham claims that the series has made more than $129 million.
