David Carradine's widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit Thursday against a French company handling the actor's last film, claiming it failed to provide proper services to protect him.
The lawsuit is against MS2 S.A., a French company responsible for the production of the movie "Stretch."
The lawsuit claims the company promised to provide Carradine the best possible amenities and an assistant to help him navigate Bankok, but left him behind for dinner on the night before the actor was found dead.
Carradine, star of the popular "Kung Fu" television series and films such as "Kill Bill," had been in the city only three days. The lawsuit also claims Carradine's widow, Anne, has run into difficulties collecting on an insurance policy that MS2 S.A. was required to have for the actor.
Carradine, 72, was found hanging dead last June in a Bangkok hotel room. The lawsuit does not offer any additional details about Carradine's death. Thai authorities have never released the results of their investigation.
The lawsuit claims Carradine's assistant and other film staffers left the actor behind for dinner after failing to reach him in his hotel room. He called the assistant an hour later, but was told the group was across town and he would have to make his own arrangements that evening.
Attempts to reach an MS2 S.A. representative by phone were not immediately successful.
The lawsuit does not specify how much Anne Carradine is seeking.
