Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson joined forces to file a lawsuit against two home cinema companies for using screen shots of them from their 2010 movie ‘The A-Team’ in advertisements
Bradley Cooper and Liam Neeson are suing two home cinema companies. ‘The A-Team’ co-stars have joined forces and filed a lawsuit, claiming their faces have been used in advertisements for the companies without their permission.
A screen shot of the duo from the action movie is featured on a big projection screen being used to promote Vutec Corp. and First Impressions Theme Theatres.
The 38-year-old ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ star and the 60-year-old Irish actor, who believe ‘The A-Team’ is an inappropriate way to sell a movie product, want the advertisements to be removed immediately and damages for being associated with the big screen companies without their permission.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, the ‘Taken 2’ actor points out in the lawsuit that he has won many acting awards and has been nominated for prestigious accolades, including Oscars and Golden Globes, more than 30 times, making his endorsements extremely valuable.
Bradley also points out in the court documents that he has also been nominated many times and won several awards including the ShoWest Convention Award for Comedy Star of the Year.
The remake of the movie, featuring both stars, was released in 2010 and also starred actress Jessica Biel.
