Take-Two Interactive is reported to have been sued for $250,000 by actor Roger Hill for the unlawful use of his likeness in The Warriors, a game based on the film by the same name. He is also seeking an injunction to bar the use of his likeness. Mr. Hill claims that he turned down an initial offer made by Take-Two for the use of his name and voice in the game and that they never followed up. Take-Two has dismissed Mr. Hill's claims as groundless and affirms having the right to use his likeness as portrayed in the film.
