Fogerty irked by ‘Proud Mary’ film
John Fogerty says he’s annoyed that Taraji P. Henson’s new film, “Proud Mary,” borrows from his popular song’s name without his involvement. Fogerty, who does not own the rights to his classic song, said “it irks me when people seek to capitalize on the popularity of my music” for their own financial gain.
Henson plays a hit woman in “Proud Mary.” Its trailer uses Tina Turner’s version of Fogerty’s 1969 song.
