Could bosses behind the new film ‘Flight’ starring Denzel Washington be looking at a re-edit?
Officials at Budweiser have come forward and demanded that all images of their beer be taken out of the film.
Anheuser-Busch, the company which produces Budweiser have reached out to Paramount Pictures, asking bosses to obscure all image of the beer, insisting that they have “no knowledge of the use or portrayal of Budweiser” in the film, which earned $25 million in it’s opening weekend.
Robert McCarthy, VP at Budweiser, has sent out a letter that was obtained by Reuters, in which he says, “We would never condone the misuse of our products, and have a long history of promoting responsible drinking and preventing drunk driving. It is disappointing that Image Movers, the production company, and Paramount chose to use one of our brands in this manner.
Paramount has yet to comment, but the film has been out for two weeks already.
