The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach is being sued over his involvement in a Howlin' Wolf documentary. According to production company Smokestack Lightning Inc, he had verbally agreed to serve as the film's directer and executive producer but then drained the budget and walked away from the project.

The complaint states that Dan "demanded certain material alterations and vast expansions," "an entirely new camera and filming format," and more. Smokestack Lightning Inc. is now suing Auerbach for breach of a verbal agreement, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, unfair business practices, and negligent misrepresentation. They're seeking $100,000.
