Jesse Eisenberg Sues Lionsgate For $3 Million Over 'Camp Hell'

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes too much publicity can be... bad publicity.

ET reports that "Social Network" actor Jesse Eisenberg is suing Lionsgate and Grindstone Entertainment over advertisements that suggest the buzzed-about actor had a major role in the low-budget horror flick "Camp Hell." The catch? Eisenberg appeared in the movie in a blip cameo role that lasted "less than five minutes," according to the legal documents that were obtained by the news show. The suit asks for a compensation of $3 million for Eisenberg.

Eisenberg -- who had allegedly appeared in the movie as a "favor to friends" -- previously starred in indie films "Zombieland" and "The Squid and the Whale" before skyrocketing to fame as Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher's Oscar-winning film.
