LATEST: Greek lawyers have shelved their lawsuit against the makers of epic film Alexander, who have claimed warrior ALEXANDER THE GREAT was bisexual.

The furious lawyers had insisted the legendary conqueror was heterosexual, and threatened to sue film studio Warner BROS and director Oliver Stone unless a credit was added to the movie to make it clear actor Colin Farrell is portraying a fictional version.

But now the legal team has retracted its request to delay the film's Greek opening last Friday, so they can watch a preview screening of it.

YANNIS VARNAKOS, spokesman for the 25 lawyers, says, "We would have reacted the same was if the issue didn't involve homosexuality. "We just don't want a distortion of historical facts."
