  • The plaintiff is the son

As The Hollywood Reporter notes, this is bound to be a major disappointment for Wright, who - at least publicly - asserted the importance of getting the many songs in the movie locked down before cameras even rolled. Now it comes in the form of a lawsuit from T. Rex's estate.

Edgar Wright's action crime drama Baby Driver has been one of the hits of the summer, taking in just under $140m at the United States box office - but now a lawsuit regarding the unlicensed use of T Rex song "Debora" looks set to spoil the party at Sony Pictures.

His complaint, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, reads, "Inexplicably, Defendants failed to obtain - or even seek - the permission of the composition's US copyright holder Rolan Feld". He claims that the use of song has damaged future synch opportunities.

Marc, who died in a auto crash in London, England in 1977, penned the track, one of 144 of his works his only child Rolan Feld obtained the USA rights to in a 2014 settlement.

Euro Mixed Ahead Of Eurozone GDP Data
GBP EUR began the week trading at around 1.1174 and has trended in a narrow range between 1.1145 and 1.1206 since then. If there are more hawks than expected though, Sterling will surge and should easily recover against the Euro.


"In the six weeks since Feld brought this infringement to defendant Sony's attention, defendants have done little more than point fingers at one another - and they have neither apologised nor offered to pay Feld a reasonable license fee", it added.

Feld first learned that Baby Driver was using the song when a Sony representative contacted his lawyer to request a license.
