Verne Troyer's lawyers are seeking an extension on a court order blocking the release of a stolen sex tape featuring the actor and an ex-girlfriend while he tries to settle with a porn distributor.

A temporary restraining order, issued two weeks ago, expires Monday, which is when a hearing is scheduled to listen to both sides of the argument -- Verne's and SugarDVD, the porn company trying to sell the tape.

The 39-year-old actor sued SugarDVD, broker Kevin Blatt -- the man behind the release of Paris Hilton's sex tape -- and TMZ for $20 million when the tape he made with ex-girlfriend Ranae Shrider leaked, citing invasion of privacy and copyright infringement.

Now, Verne is in talks with Kevin and SugarDVD and is requesting requesting U.S. District Judge Philip S. Gutierrez to extend the restraining order for a week to allow the parties to negotiate.


The star best known as Mini-Me claimed the sex tape was stolen, but Ranae issued a statement to TMZ saying that she released parts of it to the Web site.
