NEW YORK, New York (X17online) - The makers of The Hangover Part II are facing yet another lawsuit.
This time, itâ€™s luxury fashion make Louis Vuitton that has beef with the 2011 comedy. In a lawsuit filed in a New York federal court on Thursday, the company points to a scene during which Zach Galifianakisâ€™ character, Alan, uses Louis Vuitton knock-off luggage and warns another character, â€œCareful, that isâ€¦that is a Louis Vuitton.â€
Louis Vuitton charges Warner Bros. with refusing to modify the scene before the filmâ€™s DVD release and seeks damages for consumer confusion over the authenticity of their products.
A number of lawsuits against the makers of The Hangover Part II remain pending: in October, a man filed a lawsuit in which he claimed that the film's storyline was stolen from his own screenplay, and in August, a stuntman sued for brain injuries sustained during filming.
