The filmmaker suing Chris Rock over the film Good Hair wants a judge to stop the movie's release, according to a press release from virginMOONentertainment, Inc.

Filmmaker Regina Kimbell continued her quest for justice filing a request for injunction in federal court in downtown Los Angeles against Chris Rock’s “Good Hair,” scheduled for limited theatrical release on Friday, Oct. 9.

Yesterday, the evidence submitted included an email from Kimbell to Doug Miller, then Rock’s assistant and now Good Hair associate producer.

In the email, Kimbell lets Miller know that she suspected they were making a copy of the film without her permission.The court filing against Chris Rock, HBO, and the domestic and foreign theatrical distributors is requesting a halt in releasing the film this week and future release until a verdict is reached by jury trial.

Rock hasn't spoken out on the legal issues surrounding the release of the movie. But Rock made it on Oprah to promote the move last week.
