RIVERTON, Utah (AP) - A Utah ranch owner wants $2 million for being left out of the credits in a movie that starred James Franco and was directed by Robert Duvall.

Tamara Rae Larsen says she lost publicity when moviemakers used her Riverbend Ranch Equestrian Center in Riverton in the making of the film, but didn’t credit her.

She wants a judge to issue an injunction to require her credit in further distribution of “Wild Horses,” which was released in June. Her breach-of-contract lawsuit was filed Sept. 11 in 3rd District Court.

Duvall, producer Robert Carliner and 20 unspecified members of the since-disbanded California company Wild Horses Productions are named as defendants in the lawsuit. They could not be reached for comment.

Larsen said in her lawsuit that she signed a location agreement with Wild Horses Productions that took effect two days after the entity was dissolved.

The filing says she was never told the production company was dissolved. She said she had to suspend some activity on her ranch while filming was under way.

Larsen’s suit says other Utah cities as well as costume and hat providers were credited, as was well as a feed store that “was merely glimpsed.”
