Director Lee Daniels is currently working on "The Paper Boy" starring Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman. TMZ has obtained footage of Lee getting in to some sort of verbal disagreement with producer Avi Lerner in which they both accuse each other of being racist.

Whatever the argument is about it looks like Daniels maintains his composure while Lerner points at him with a wagging finger, yelling at him and demanding an apology.

Representatives for both Daniels and Lerner tell TMZ both parties laughed it off.
