The proposed movie would star Eddie Murphy as hero Roger Thornhill

Hollywood, LA - Plans for a remake of the 1959 classic spy thriller are being challenged in the LA courts on plagiarism grounds.

37 year-old rapper Kanye West and his wife Kim have instructed lawyers to block the iconic Hitchcock movie remake in case it compromises their one year-old daughter North's intellectual property rights.

North West's upcoming kiddies' clothing, perfume and toiletries range is already at copyright stage with patents pending ahead of a December launch.

Lawyers will argue that the prospective movie would be a serious breach of credibility on the upcoming marketing campaign that's set to make Little Nori as she is called her first million bucks.

Although script details are sparse at present Hollywood studio insiders have hinted the new movie's plot is centered around the South African capital of Johannesburg during the Cold War.

An all black cast would star Halle Berry as the new Eve Kendall alongside Eddie Murphy playing hero Roger Thornhill.

A preliminary hearing at the Los Angeles District Court takes place tomorrow at noon.
