Darabont's L.A. Noir Series Renamed Lost Angels

Darabont's L.A. Noir Series Renamed Lost Angels
The upcoming Frank Darabont TV series, "L.A. Noir", has been renamed according to io9.  The new title for the series will be "Lost Angels", and Darabont gave an interview explaining why it was necessary.

"It was going to be called L.A. Noir, based on the book by John Buntin. But the video game company [Rockstar] with the video game called 'L.A. Noire' threatened to sue the s--t out of me, TNT, and every company that actually ever worked in Hollywood. They have the billions of dollars to back it up, apparently. So we're changing the title, and I do believe the title is going to be 'Lost Angels'."

The show is based on the the book "L.A. Noir: The Struggle For The Soul Of America's Most Seductive City" and will star Jon Bernthal, Neal McDonough, Milo Ventimiglia, Jeremy Strong, Jeffrey DeMunn, Ron Rifkin, Alexa Davalos and Pihla Viitala. Simon Pegg will also be putting in a guest starring role.
