TV Show Changes Name Over L.A. Noire Name Dispute
Darabont claims that the company, Take-Two, threatened to sue him.
“Yes, it was going to be called L.A. Noir, based on the book by John Buntin. But the video game company with the video game called L.A. Noire (with an e!) threatened to sue the sh*t out of me, TNT, every company that actually ever worked in Hollywood,” Darabont said.
“And they have the billions of dollars to back it up, apparently. So we’re changing the title, and I do believe the title is going to be Lost Angels.”
The TV-show is apparently also set in 1947′s Los Angeles, which happens to be the same time-period as the game.
