Remember the recent case of the unnamed “approaching 40”-year-old actress who sued and its website the Internet Movie Database for listing her—gasp!—real age?

Well, the plot has thickened, with IMDb attorneys filing a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming the woman they believe to be behind the complaint asked the site to fudge her age with a phony number before she took things to court, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“Truth and justice are philosophical pillars of this Court,” IMDb’s filing states, as published by the Reporter. “The perpetuation of fraud, even for an actor’s career, is inconsistent with these principals [sic]. Plaintiff’s attempt to manipulate the federal court system so she can censor iMDb’s display of her birth date and pretend to the world that she is not 40 years old is selfish, contrary to the public interest and a frivolous abuse of this Court’s resources.”

But what we wanna know is, who’s in talks for the movie rights? Feels like a made-for-TV flick to us.
