Movie bosses behind The Hangover sequel are facing legal action from the Louis Vuitton fashion house over a purse carried by Zach Galifianakis' character in the hit comedy.
Executives of the French brand have filed a lawsuit against the makers of The Hangover Part II alleging a handbag seen onscreen in the hands of Galifianakis is a Louis Vuitton fake.
The legal papers, filed at a federal court in New York on Thursday (22Dec11), state fashion bosses are unhappy with a scene in which the actor carries a bag with a Lvm logo and says, "Careful, that is a Louis Vuitton".
They claim the bag is not a real Louis Vuitton and could cause confusion among consumers, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Louis Vuitton bosses want the scene to be cut from the film, while they are also demanding a share of the movie's profits.
