Director Zhang Yimou on Tuesday won a 15 million yuan (2.4 million U.S. dollars) lawsuit against New Pictures film company.

The Chaoyang District People's Court in Beijing ordered New Pictures to pay Zhang 15 million yuan in revenue from a film, "A Simple Noodle Story", that he directed.

Zhang said he and the Hong Kong company had agreed to equally share revenues minus promotional costs of the film, but he never received any money.

The court said New Pictures could not offer any evidence of payment.

Zhang said he had signed an agreement with New Pictures in 2009.

According to media reports, Zhang and New Pictures ended their decade-long cooperation in 2012.

New Pictures said it will appeal.
