Stranger Things: Filmmaker claims creators stole his Idea

Stranger Things is going to court, the creators anyway…

From Uproxx:

On Wednesday, Stranger Things co-creators Matt and Ross Duffer responded to a filmmaker’s lawsuit claiming that they stole the idea for the hit Netflix show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Duffer brothers’ attorney, Alex Kohner said in a statement, “Mr. Kessler’s claim is completely meritless. He had no connection to the creation or development of Stranger Things. The Duffer Brothers have neither seen Mr. Kessler’s short film nor discussed any project with him. This is just an attempt to profit from other people’s creativity and hard work.”

The aforementioned “Mr. Kessler” is Charlie Kessler, a filmmaker who claims he pitched the original concept for what became Stranger Things to Matt and Ross Duffer at a party at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

Guys, you created Eleven, just get her to handle this, easy peasy!
