Quentin Tarantino sues Alan Ball over macaws

Hollywood neighbourly noise dispute gets ugly

Writing for Quentin Tarantino‘s next film could end up being delayed – because he’s taking True Blood creator Alan Ball to court.

The Pulp Fiction writer and director is suing Ball, who is his neighbour, over the noise made by his macaw bird.

Tarantino claims that the “blood-curdling screams” made by the exotic birds is disrupting his ability to write, reports Hollywoodreporter.com.

He filed his suit yesterday (March 11) to the Los Angeles Superior Court. In it he claimed that the “obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams” coming from Ball‘s menagerie have “seriously disrupted his ability to work as a writer in his home”.


He added that he has tried to resolve the matter with Ball amicably, without success. He’s asked the court for an injunction ordering Ball to curb the noise and also for damages.
