The Federal Trade Commission has filed a motion to bar Blockbuster from pursuing a hostile takeover of Hollywood Video.

Blockbuster's $1.3 billion offer, which includes paying cash for $225 million of Hollywood's long-term debt and $14.50 for each Hollywood share, expires Friday (March 11).

The motion was filed March 4 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It states that Blockbuster has not provided the FTC with all of the information the commission requested.

Hollywood's board of directors has already approved a $1.2 billion acquisition bid from Movie Gallery. Movie Gallery has also received regulatory clearance to acquire Hollywood.

A Blockbuster representative could not be reached for comment.
