Viacom Inc.’s Paramount Pictures unit is suing a District of Columbia man to stop distribution of an Internet film based on a script by director Oliver Stone.

Yale University graduate Chris Moukarbel, 28, made an abbreviated version of Stone’s upcoming $60 million movie “World Trade Center,” about two Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police officers, Will Jimeno and John McLoughlin, rescued from the rubble of the twin towers. The 12-minute film — based on a bootleg script and starring Yale student actors — was offered for free through Moukarbel’s Web site.
