Filmmaker Michael Moore is refusing to settle his lawsuit against Harvey and Bob Weinstein over $2.7 million in profits from his hit movie Fahrenheit 9/11.
The director filed suit against the movie moguls in February, accusing them of using “financial deception” and “bogus accounting methods” to hide his shares – but he’s determined to see the matter resolved in court.

He tells the New York Post, “No settlement. No interest in one. Discovery and depositions will reveal how the accounting is done, once and for all.”

However, Moore insists he bears no “ill will” towards the siblings.

He adds, “Harvey and I have a lot of important history together, brothers in arms. And he and Bob have nothing but a force for good indie filmmakers… I hold no ill will, and for now am just blaming all of this on his accountants and business affairs people.”

A lawyer for the Weinsteins is adamant the pair has paid Moore what he is owed.
