Judge blocks use of Adrien Brody's image in film

LOS ANGELES (AP) -November 23, 2010

U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fischer issued a ruling Monday blocking the makers of "Giallo" from continuing to distribute, market or sell "Giallo" in the United States.

Brody sued last month before the film went on sale in the states, claiming he was owed $640,000. He tried unsuccessfully to block its sale, but Fischer says Brody is likely to win the case and his likeness can no longer be used in the film or to promote it.

His face appears twice on film's DVD cover.

A call to attorney Martin Barab, who is representing the makers of "Giallo," was not immediately returned.
