Film producers RANDALL EMMETT and George FURLA are facing legal action from a professional poker player after they cut his part in an upcoming movie to just one line.

Aspiring actor Dan Bilzerian paid the producers $1 million in exchange for a role in Lone Survivor, starring Mark Wahlberg and Emile Hirsch.

Bilzerian insists Emmett and Furla agreed he could play the role of Chief Healy and he is now suing the pair after they cut his lines, according to a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday (28Aug13).

The complaint reveals Bilzerian had allegedly arranged to appear in the film for at least eight minutes with 80 words of dialogue but ended up with just one line and one minute of screen time.

He is demanding damages of more than $1.2 million .

Lone Survivor is due for release later this year (13).
