Blues legend BB King is being sued by King Size Film Production for allegedly interfering with the production of a film about a screenwriter’s long-time relationship with him, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The lawsuit which was filed last week in California says that King’s demands on the filmmakers violate First Amendment rights and “radically alter the law and strike a severe blow to expressive and artistic freedom.” The suit also claims that King’s demands has not only caused the film’s delay but has kept its producers from trying to secure further investments for the project.

The controversial film in question, “BB King and I,” was written by Michael Zanetis. It is about his decades long friendship with the Blues performer whom he was introduced to back in 1977 by his son.

Zanetis, who says he helped to get King a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1990,  claims that his friend stood behind his efforts in writing the screenplay when he first penned it in 2006.  The writer then says that as the film began to go into production, King tried to put the brakes on it.

King’s attorney has sent a cease-and-desist letter to King Size Film saying the movie and its associated website violated King’s trademarks and publicity rights.
