“`Producer Roger Corman is being sued by his sons over plans to sell his 270-title  New Horizon Pictures film library. The complaint, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, also names Corman’s spouse of 48 years and longtime producing partner, plus Shout! Factory and Ace Film, the library’s intended buyers. The transaction was announced on March 15th for an undisclosed price.

“`Roger Martin and Brian Corman claim that their parents have no rights to unload the catalog — which includes The Little Shop of Horrors — because it is property of The Pacific Trust, established in 1978 for the benefit of their four children. The sons learned that the library had a prospective new home through the media.

“`According to the complaint, they are more upset with their mom’s action than their dad’s. As Roger neared his 80th birthday, he decided to give a larger portion of the assets to his children before his death.  Their mother responded by making forceful demands to her husband that he not share personal finances with the kids. The issue was a source of conflict within the family.

“`Corman’s New World Pictures, founded in 1970, was once America’s largest independent motion picture distribution company.  Roger, who turns 92 on Thursday, received an honorary Oscar in 2009.
