Adding another issue
to Take-Two's already-full plate, actor Roger Hill is suing the publisher for the publisher's alleged use of his likeness in the game The Warriors
. Hill is seeking $250,000 and a court order barring the use of his likeness, according to the New York Daily News.
In the film, Hill plays Cyrus, the leader of the Gramercy Riffs and is subsequently assassinated by the leader of the Rogues, who frames the Warriors for the murder.
Hill, who now works at a Manhattan business college library, claims Take-Two approached him about using his voice and likeness, but he rejected the offer and the publisher never renegotiated. A spokesman for Take-Two claims that the company "has a valid third-party license for the rights to use Roger Hill's likeness and the character of Cyrus in The Warriors videogame and related marketing materials."
