Quentin Tarantino Sues Alan Ball Over Exotic Birds’ ‘Blood-Curdling Screams’

This sounds like the makings of an episode from one of Tarantino’s movies:

Quentin Tarantino is suing his neighbor, True Blood creator Alan Ball, over a more personal matter.Tarantino, director of Pulp Fiction and the Kill Bill movies, is suing Ball over the “blood-curdling screams” emitted by his exotic birds.

Tarantino claims in his lawsuit, filed Thursday in L.A. County Superior Court, that the “obnoxious pteradactyl-like screams” coming from Ball’s “exotic bird menagerie” have “seriously disrupted [his] ability to work as a writer in his home.”

He adds that he’s also tried to resolve the matter with Ball — who also created the TV series Six Feet Under and won an Oscar for writing American Beauty — to no avail.
