Tarantino sues over neighbour's screaming birds

275x250.jpgQuentin Tarantino is suing an Oscar-winning screenwriter neighbour… because his pet macaws keep letting out "blood curdling, pterodactyl-like screams".

The Pulp Fiction director - who is no stranger to blood curdling screams - says the noisy birds are even stopping him form working on his latest movie.

According to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the birds belong to Alan Ball, the man behind American Beauty and TV series True Blood.

He and his wife are said to have installed an "exotic bird menagerie" over a year ago and their macaws now scream for seven to eight hours each day.

47-year-old Tarantino claims the "obnoxious pterodactyl-like screams" have "seriously disrupted" his ability to work… we would have though they acted as inspiration.
"On a daily basis defendant's macaws ... emit blood-curdling screams at random intervals for 7 to 8 hours each day," the suit, filed on Thursday in the Los Angeles Superior Court, reads.

"Nearly every day, Mr Tarantino and others in his home are subjected to the macaws' obnoxious pterodactyl-like screams, which are not only startling, but have also seriously disrupted Mr Tarantino's ability to work as a writer in his home.

"Though one might assume that, as a fellow writer, Mr Ball would understand and respect a writer's need for peace and quiet while he is working, that assumption would be wrong."
