Army Veteran Sues 'The Hurt Locker' Producer


Jeremy Renner


Master Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver, a U.S. army veteran, has filed a lawsuit against the producers as the film's scenes contradict proper action and leads his friends to question his abilities.

A U.S. army bomb disposal expert has signed off on his legal battle with the producers of Oscar-winning movie "The Hurt Locker" while serving in Afghanistan. Master Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver alleges the movie's lead character, played by Jeremy Renner, is based on him but he was given no credit or compensation from the filmmakers, and now he's regularly ridiculed by colleagues.

He originally filed suit in his native New Jersey in 2010 on the eve of the 2010 Academy Awards, naming director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal as defendants. Earlier in 2011, they launched a motion to dismiss Sarver's lawsuit, alleging he was interfering with their right to free speech.

But on Tuesday, March 15, the Iraq war veteran signed his filing while serving a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Sarver claims some of the film's scenes contradict proper actions, and fellow service members have questioned his abilities since the movie's release. Bigelow, Boal and the producers of the film are still fighting to get the case dismissed.
