MGM settles suit over “Raging Bull”

Producers agreed to change the name of “Raging Bull II”

Jake LaMotta and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM) have called a truce. The movie studio and former boxer have reached an agreement in the lawsuit MGM filed against LaMotta last month.

The studio filed suit against LaMotta and producers of the upcoming “Raging Bull II,” a sequel to the critically acclaimed, Oscar-winning 1980 film “Raging Bull,” which told the story of the rise and fall of LaMotta’s boxing career. MGM sought to stop production.
