Hotel: Visiting Film Crew Walked Out On $37K Bill

film cbs Hotel: Visiting Film Crew Walked Out On $37K BillA luxurious suburban Detroit hotel says it was stiffed by a film company that left town without paying nearly $37,000 in food, lodging and services.

A lawsuit filed in Oakland County Circuit Court by the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham claims it provided Little Murder Productions and Arizona-based Mind in Motion Entertainment with an open account last year when the independent film production crew was filming “Little Murder,” a thriller set in New Orleans, post-Hurricane Katrina.

Several people are named in the suit, including actor Cary Elwes and Tim Gendreau, Mind in Motion president.

The Detroit News said company officials could not immediately be reached for comment, and a telephone listing in Detroit was disconnected.

The Associated Press left a message Wednesday for Elwes’ publicist.
