Battle of Silver Lake

New, 5 comments

Sexy Silver Lake (and some points further east) has got two movies fighting in court over the name "East of Sunset." Blixa Films released its "East of Sunset," which was set in Silver Lake and featured "a number of indie rock musicians performing works composed by Tom Waits," in 2004, and filed suit yesterday against Thrillhouse Prods, whose forthcoming "East of Sunset" is "an alt-rock music-themed documentary." So much in common, but they just can't get along. [2004 "East of Sunset" image via IMDb] [Hollywood Reporter]
