Producer Alan Elliott is going to have to pay up because he is not showing Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, the proper R-E-S-P-E-C-T she deserves!

In an amended complaint, Franklin says that Elliott needs “to stop the unauthorized release and showing for commercial purposes” of Amazing Grace, a documentary which features footage from the singer’s 1972 gospel concert at New Missionary Baptist Church.

The amended complaint claims that Elliott held a screening for buyers at the Toronto Film Festival, which violated “Ms. Franklin’s contractual and statutory rights, her rights to use and control her name and likeness, and represents an invasion of her privacy.”

Franklin originally filed the lawsuit before the doc was scheduled to premiere at the Telluride Film Festival. The singer was controversially granted a temporary injunction to block the screening, and Amazing Grace was subsequently pulled from the lineup of the Chicago Film Festival and the Toronto Film Festival.

Franklin is looking to have all rights of her 1972 performance awarded as her own and to stop Elliott “his agents, employees and all those working in concert with him, from publicly releasing or using for commercial purposes of the film.”
