Screen Gems’ Friends with Benefits, starring Justin Timberlake and Milla Kunis, will be allowed to continue with the title after a dispute with Paramount Pictures. Both studios had a film with the same title. It is not uncommon in Hollywood for studios to compete over similar titles. Titles can only be approved when one studio drops their protest over the title. The studio who gets the title is usually the one who registered with the MPAA first. The other film, directed by Ivan Reitman, was originally called F*** Buddies and is now on its third name. The movie stars Ashton Kutcher, Natalie Portman and Kevin Kline. Screen Gems may fall into another problem from a new NBC sitcom with the same title. 500 Days of Summer screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber created and are executive producing. According to EW.com the series will expect the movie to change its name.
