Author Tess Gerritsen has sued Warner Bros. claiming the studio owes her millions in profits from the Oscar-winning hit film "Gravity".Gerritsen sued Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. in a Los Angeles federal court on Tuesday, alleging the studio violated an agreement she had with one of its subsidiaries to turn her novel "Gravity" into a movie. Gerritsen, whose books include a series that is the basis for the TNT show "Rizzoli & Isles," sold the film rights to the "Gravity" novel for $1 million in 1999 .Warner Bros. declined comment on the case, but spokesman Paul McGuire noted that in October Gerritsen told an audience at an Indiana public library that the film wasn't based on her book.
