Good news, Hangover fans! The lawsuit regarding Ed Helms‘ Mike Tyson tattoo in The Hangover Part II has been settled.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ed’s tattoo will be staying on his face for the DVD release of the film.
Warner Bros. and Missouri tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill reached a settlement, the terms of which were not disclosed.
“Warner Bros. and Mr. Whitmill have amicably resolved their dispute,” Whitmill’s attorney Geoff Gerber told THR. “No other information will be provided.”
Whitmill sued Warner Bros. in April asking for the release of the The Hangover Part II to be stopped because it used his copyrighted tattoo without permission.
A judge allowed the release of the film on time, but the case continued and Warner Bros. said it would digitally alter the tattoo for DVD if the case didn’t settle quickly.
According to sources, a deal was reached after an all-day mediation in St. Louis on Friday.
