Warner Bros owns the right to the title ‘The Butler’. Lee Daniels new film ‘The Butler’ starring heavy hitters like Oprah Winfrey, Forrest Whitaker, Terrance Howard, and many more. The film may have to change it’s name because Warner Bros owns the right to that name. Lee Daniels wrote a heart touched letter, pleading with the Warner Bros CEO to allow the title ‘The Butler’ to remain.  Do you think Warner Bros will allow Lee Daniels to keep the title ‘The Butler’? Either way, I’m going to see the film. 

Director Lee Daniels stepped up his efforts in pleading his case to Warner Bros. Entertainment’s new CEO Kevin Tsujihara. He sent a letter saying that if the title to his upcoming film, The Butler, has to change, “it will most certainly hurt the film.” The MPAA’s Title Registry Bureau ruled in Warner Bros. favor that the Weinstein Company cannot use the title, because it’s also the name of a 1916 short film that Warner Bros. owns in their library.

Daniels’ letter tried to pull at the hearts of Warner Bros. executives by saying he made this movie so he could show his kids, his family and his country some of the injustices and victories African-Americans and their families have experienced in the fight for civil rights.He added, “Working on the film is the proudest moment of my professional career, I am heartbroken as I write this letter.”

  1. Why not keep the word Butle rand add to it…ex…THE BUTLERS DILEMMA or…THE BUTLERS HOUSE…or…THE BUTLERS ROLE…or THE BUTLERS SERVICE.

  2. The Butler

  3. He should just change it to “I am the Butler” or “The Butler’s story”. One word is all he needs. Several suggestions:

    “I, the Butler”
    “The White House Butler”
    “The President’s Butler”
    “John, the Butler”
    “The movie formerly known as the Butler”, …………………………..Prince did it.
    He should not beg anybody. It won’t matter. It is a hit, so whatever the name change won’t make a difference.
