Warner Bros. is threatening to digitally change the facial tattoo worn by Ed Helms in The Hangover Part II on the DVD release to avoid having to pay artist Victor Whitmill, who claims the tattoo is a copy of his original design. Whitmill designed a facial tattoo worn by Mike Tyson face, and in the sequel Helms wakes up with a similar tattoo. A court memorandum obtained by E! News reads: “If the parties are unable to resolve their dispute, Warner Bros. does not intend to make any use of the allegedly infringing tattoo after the film ends its run in the theaters because Warner Bros. will digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’ face.” Whitmill originally asked that the film’s release to theaters be delayed until the court case is settled. His request was denied. The document also states: “If this dispute is not resolved within the next two to three weeks, Warner Bros. will have to spend the funds that would otherwise be available for settlement to digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’s face.” Whitmill is now asking that an injunction be put on the film starting August 8, 2011. Warner Bros. is requesting more time — saying that they’ll have their case ready by February 2012.
