Brendan Fraser Sues Over William Tell 3D Film

(TMZ) Brendan Fraser claims the producers behind a new 3D movie about William Tell owe him more than $2 million in acting fees -- and now, he's suing for every penny ... plus more.

Brendan filed the lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court -- claiming producer Todd Moyer hired him to act in "The Legend of William Tell: 3D" in early 2011, promising to begin shooting in October of that year.

Brendan claims he fully committed to the schedule -- passing up several other lucrative acting jobs to remain available for the William Tell gig.

But according to the lawsuit, Moyer couldn't stay on schedule due to financing problems -- relegating the William Tell project to development hell. The movie is still listed in pre-production on IMDb.

Brendan says his contract guarantees a payout of $2.25 million whether the film shoots or not -- and now, he wants all that money ... plus additional damages.

All told, Brendan wants more than $3 million. Calls to Todd Moyer were not returned. more on this story
