    'Chicago' producer sues Miramax for $10M
    A producer of the Academy Award-winning movie Chicago filed a $10 million lawsuit Monday against Miramax Films Corp., accusing it of failing to his company its share of hundred of millions of dollars the movie earned.

    The Producer Circle Co. says in its lawsuit it is the owner of the film rights to the musical Chicago, a Broadway hit of the 1970s that Miramax agreed to produce with PCC as a movie. PCC said it was to receive part of the film's gross.
    Martin Richards, founder and principal of PCC, says in court papers he and Miramax founders Bob and Harvey Weinstein were producers of Chicago.
