Kiss Of The Spider Woman director DAVID WEISMAN is filing a lawsuit in Los Angeles against producer Robert Evans.

Weisman claims the credit for Evans's biographical flick THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE should go to him rather than Evans and co-producers Graydon Carter, Brett Morgen and Nanette Burstein, who he claims "misappropriated" his ideas for the film.

JAMES O'CALLAHAN, Weisman's lawyer, says his client made a 16-minute short that inspired the film later made by Evans.
