Director Quentin Tarantino is suing his neighbor, who happens to be the creator of the hit cable series "True Blood."

Tarantino filed a lawsuit last week in Los Angeles Superior Court against "True Blood" screenwriter Alan Ball.

The lawsuit alleges Tarantino is fed up with Ball's exotic birds.

He claims the birds' screams are making it difficult for him to work at home.

Tarantino says he tried to talk with ball about the noisy birds but nothing was resolved.
