They may be some perfect pitch having singers from Philly, but do not mess with Boyz II Men because they will get live with you if you disrespect their legacy. A film maker is in the crosshairs of the legendary R&B group because he wants to name his film “Boys 2 Men” and the singing group is not here for it.
Reps for the Grammy Award winning group sent a letter to the makers of the film saying they never gave the film permission to use their name for the film. The group plans on suing the film makers if they choose to not change the name of the movie. Boyz II Men plans on suing any website, movie theater, or retailer that carries the movie with the group’s name as the title of the film.
While the cease and desist letter would be enough for most people to change the name of the flick, the writer/director of the film “Boys 2 Men” says he has no plans of changing the name of the movie until he is painted into a legal corner. The writer/director doesn’t believe the singing group will actually file suit against him.
If I were him, I wouldn’t take the chance, but it’s his film and money.
