According to TMZ, the rapper hired the filmmaker to direct a documentary about his alleged real-life account of being captured by Somali pirates off the East African coast in 2009.
He put up $70k of his own money to fund the film; he and the crew took the trip and did the filming. But when it was time to hand over the footage, for some reason Marshall didn’t want to give it up.
Perhaps the reports about Pras and his crew only witnessing the capture of the Maersk Alabama has something to do with it.
At any rate, Mashall’s reps say Pras actually has no right to the footage because the director owns the copyright.
A sticky situation we’ll have to follow upon judgment.
