Millennium Films, the company that produced the 2008 film Righteous Kill starring Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, have filed a lawsuit in LA County court against watch company Tutima USA for unpaid advertising fees.

The lawsuit alleges that Tutima USA would pay Millennium Films for a close up shot of their watch on Al Pacino’s wrist. Millennium Films claims they delivered the shot in the movie, but have yet to be paid.  The lawsuit seeks $50,000 as the fee for the arranged shot, plus an additional $1,000,000 for advertising that was supposed to be purchased.

At this time, Tutima USA has not made an official comment about the lawsuit.
