'2 Guns' Lawsuit

Our High-Class Booze

Didn't Make Final Cut

 INT. -- BOBBY'S BEDROOM -- NIGHT

Bobby (Denzel Washington) kicks back and pours a glass of Remy Martin (mentioning it by name ... proclaiming it his favorite).  Deb (Paula Patton) pours herself a glass, too.

Just one small problem ... that scene for the movie, "2 Guns" ... NEVER took place ... and that's why the famed French cognac maker is suing the filmmakers.

The fancy liquor company -- Remy Cointreau USA -- claims it made a deal with Brand-In Entertainment ... paying $50K to have its cognac prominently featured -- and mentioned by name -- in Denzel's movie.

According to the lawsuit ... the fine liquor didn't make the final cut.  Thus, the lawsuit.

Fin.

Sounds like a legitimate gripe to me. You pay for product placement: get it or get your money back.

I'd have a drink with Denzel. I'd have two if I looked like her.

Brand In--Entertainment, says it all. An entire operation dedicated to nesting a brand in movies. That's for all you sheep who waste your time and money watching that Hollywood bullsh*t. They are that confident that they can MANIPULATE you... and they're right.
.
But's what as pathetic, is that Cointreau had to resort to taking the the bastards to court. Those cheap ass tensile town exec are as fvcked up as the rappers who snatch the loot and not produce... too CHEAP to come off of $50,000. Did you really think they wouldn't notice--or would say, "screw it" and let you keep the money you essentially STOLE?

2 things. They can pay back 50K which is nothing to producers. Or just put it in the deleted scenes dvd version. Not sure how solid the contract is and if it states that it had to make the "final cut" of the movie. Deleted scenes should be okay if the contract was loopy.

Paula Patton is the hottest woman in Hollywood. No doubt. Robin Thicke is a lucky man.
