According to The Hollywood Reporter, Aretha Franklin has filed an amended complaint against producer Alan Elliott, who showed the Amazing Grace documentary at a private screening at the Toronto Film Festival for commercial gain.
Franklin wants Elliott "to stop the unauthorized release and showing for commercial purposes" of Amazing Grace, which shows concert footage of her that dates back to 1972. After reports that Elliott held a showing for film executives at the Toronto Film Festival, the lawsuit was filed in Colorado.
The compliant explicitly states Franklin was “never given permission for the use of this footage in any commercial or other context and has not authorized the public release of the footage." There were also planned screenings at a Chicago Film Festival, Los Angeles, and Mill Valley, Calif.
