‘Scream’ ruling favors Miramax

Court rules Columbia, Mandalay must comply with injunction

Miramax Films has won another round in its legal battle against Columbia Pictures over the worldwide marketing campaign for Columbia’s horror pic “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that Columbia and Mandalay Entertainment must comply with a preliminary injunction ordering the removal of any references to “Scream” in the advertising and marketing for “Summer.”

Although Columbia voluntarily dropped its campaign touting “Summer” as coming “from the creator of ‘Scream'” in the U.S., it is being used overseas.

Kevin Williamson wrote the screenplays for both “Scream” and “Summer.” However, “Scream” director Wes Craven (who also directed “Scream 2”) did not have any involvement in “Summer.”

A Columbia spokesman said the studio plans to appeal.
