Paramount and Dreamworks are upset over a Shrek-related photo spread in the forthcoming summer edition of Vman that features the character and his friends comporting in provocative poses. "While we do respect Vman's creative vision, the shoot did not turn out the way originally envisioned when the idea was first presented by the magazine," a Paramount spokesperson told today's (Wednesday) Hollywood Reporter . "In hindsight, we would have declined to include the Shrek characters in such a magazine spread." According to the trade publication, the studio had anticipated that the characters would appear in a classy spread similar to the one for Harpers Bazaar in which The Simpsons characters were seen wearing high-end clothing from top fashion houses. It appeared prior to the release of The Simpsons Movie. The Shrek spread is set for release at about the time Shrek Forever After opens on April 21.
