Is Joe Jonas a video thief? 'For Lovers Only' director accuses him of plagiarism
Oops. It seems that Joe Jonas may have hired the wrong director to helm his latest music video, "Just In Love." Mark Polish, the director of a low-budget French film called "For Lovers Only" also starring "Castle's" Stana Katic, has accused video director Jaci Judelson of stealing his shots.
TheWrap reports that Jonas's video, which features him "cavorting" in Paris with French model Angele Sassy, is nearly identical to the film.
"It's very disheartening that a fellow director would go to those lengths to copy 'For Lovers Only' and not credit us," Polish tells the site. "If they had said our film was their inspiration, we would have been flattered, but nowhere in any of their materials do they say that we were an influence on them, which is upsetting to us as artists. And it makes this feel like plagiarism."
According to TheWrap, Polish and his brother, Michael, who co-directed the movie, are considering legal action.
