SCRANTON -- Lackawanna County commissioners want to know how $500,000 in taxpayer money was spent on making the movie “The Trouble with Cali,” especially now when it appears the movie deal is dead.
At the county commissioners meeting Wednesday, the commissioners requested detailed information on how director Paul Sorvino spent the money for his film.
They also want to ask for the money back.
Former commissioners approved the money years ago.
Sorvino revealed earlier this month that a deal to distribute the film to theaters fell through.
Action 16 investigative reporter Dave Bohman was scheduled to meet with Sorvino in New York City to talk about the issue, but Sorvino cancelled the interview on the advice of his attorney.
