Stranger Things: Duffer Brothers have PROOF they didn't steal ideas

The Stranger Things Creators Sued for Plagiarism

He also says that the famous siblings sold the show to Netflix using the same name as his short film.

TMZ reports Kessler wants money and destruction of all materials which are claimed to be ripped off from his original concept.

"Mr. Kessler's claim is completely meritless".

Kessler is suing the Duffer Brothers for breach of implied contract and seeks monetary damages at trial. "This is just an attempt to profit from other people's creativity and hard work", he said in a statement to TV Guide.

A few days ago, filmmaker Charlie Kessler accused the "Stranger Things" creators, Matt and Ross Duffer, of stealing his idea for the show without his permission.

In December 2017, Netflix ordered a third season of Stranger Things, consisting of eight episodes.

Matt and Ross allegedly brought up the concept of a "real", "paranormal" "gritty eighties" show nearly eight years ago and even mentioned that it would be based in Montauk, New York.

A Google document dated October 4, 2013, would set the premise for Stranger Things, where the scene in which Will gets lost in the woods is explained.

An accompanying Google document from 2013 reportedly describes the opening scene almost beat for beat with how the Netflix version began: A group of kids are playing Dungeons and Dragons at one of their houses, one kid leaves on his bike, and is kidnapped into a "strange world".

A Google document created three years later included the details of the original premise for Stranger Things, with a teenager named Benny - who would become Will Byers - leaving his friends house and entering a odd world by "an evil force". There is a reference to "the Montauk experiments".

Before the show moved its shooting to Georgia, the description initially read: "In the series, set in 1980 Montauk, Long Island, a young boy vanishes into thin air".

Stranger Things creators the Duffer brothers are in trouble again, but this time someone's actually taking them to court.

The Duffers' lawyer tells the outlet, "These documents prove that Mr. Kessler had absolutely nothing to do with the creation of Stranger Things".
