The sons of rock and roll legend Roy Orbison are suing a former business partner in order to move forward with a hologram tour, starring the likeness of their late father.
Orbison's sons Alex, Roy Jr. and Wesley struck a deal with Hologram USA in 2014 to work on the project.
Two years later, since a prototype had yet to be produced—even though tour dates have been announced—the Orbisons tried to terminate the Hologram USA contract to enter into a new agreement with BASE Holograms, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
But now Hologram USA has threatened its own lawsuit, accusing BASE of "tortious interference" and the Orbison men of violating a clause preventing them from communicating with a competitor about the Roy Orbison hologram show.
The Orbisons have asked a court to uphold their termination of the Hologram USA contract.
It's not clear how the proceeding with affect the announced tour dates. Read more here.
