An ironworker injured in a fall from the Hollywood sign while dismantling a movie promotion display sued Paramount Pictures, saying he has been unable to work since the accident.
The Superior Court lawsuit by Paul Georges seeks unspecified general and medical damages stemming from the July 14 accident.
Georges fell 20 feet, breaking several ribs and suffering two herniated discs , when scaffolding supporting part of the cartoon character “Holli Would” (played by Kim Basinger) from the movie “Cool World” collapsed, the suit said.
The character was perched atop the “D” in the Hollywood sign.
Georges worked for the contractor that erected the promotion for Paramount.
Paramount spokeswoman Cheryl Boone Isaacs could not be reached by telephone for comment late Wednesday.
