Film director Matthew Fulks has filed a lawsuit accusing director Bryan Younce as well as Sony Music, Columbia Recordings and Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment of lifting several of his ideas and putting them in the trailer that sent the internet into a frenzy back in April. Fulks, who works full-time at Louisville, Ky. news station WDRB as creative director, says that he was contacted about an opportunity to direct a video for Columbia-signed musical group MS MR.
