Lawsuit Seeks to Block 'Lovelace'

The production company that owns the legendary, XXX movie, "Deep Throat" is suing the producers of the new movie "Lovelace" ... trying to block its release -- no pun intended.

Arrow Productions -- which owns the copyright to the most famous porn flick ever -- is crying foul play because "Lovelace" includes 3 scenes from the seminal skin flick -- no pun intended.

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Arrow originally allowed producers of a similar film called "Inferno" to use scenes from the porn.  Problem was -- funding for "Inferno" dried up.  That's when the plan for "Lovelace" was hatched, but Arrow says it didn't give permission for that project.

As for the money shot -- Arrow wants at least $10 mil, and an order blocking release of the movie.

How can you sue for damages when the film has not even been released? I would understand if the film was released and the producers made money to file a copyright suite. I think they tipped there own hand a little early and should have waited to file suite.

There's nothing wrong with the TMZ staff under-scoring jokes with "no pun intended."


A lot of times you're only half-reading something, so the "no pun intended" makes you pay more attention.


Besides, the writing's gotten really funny.


They're having fun with their material/stories - that's how it should be.

Just reenact the **** scenes. Shouldn't cost much to shoot. The original looks like hell.

Arrow owns rights to footage that is used without permission in the movie. And this is yet another millennial instance where no one fits their roles in the film which will suck. As usual.
