Mewes balks at biography film

LOS ANGELES, June 30 (UPI) -- Jason Mewes is having second thoughts about allowing a crew to document his heroin addiction and struggle to get clean.

According to the producer of "Rock Bottom," the Mewes documentary, the 29-year-old star of "Clerks" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is no longer cooperating and disputes the filmmaker's right to film his life story.

The Smoking Gun reported Monday a Los Angeles Superior Court lawsuit filed against Mewes by the documentary's producer in mid-March said the actor signed contracts for his life story and his personal management.

But with the actor now disavowing those agreements, the producer is seeking a judicial declaration affirming its legal right to "produce and exploit" the Mewes story.

April 1, three weeks after Mewes signed the contracts, he appeared in a New Jersey courthouse to plead guilty to charges he violated terms of a probation imposed following his February 2000 conviction for felony heroin possession.
