Marlon Brando's producer pal Mike Medavoy has reportedly been named the executer of the late movie legend's will after the dying actor made last-minute changes.

Sources close to Brando claim the actor removed two longtime confidantes as executers and replaced them with Medavoy shortly before his death last week (01JUL04) because he thought the Vertical Limit producer would do a better job of overseeing his fortune.

Medavoy claims Brando made the last-minute change to make sure his wishes were carried out, so that his kids got all his assets.

The producer insists anyone who challenges the will is "motivated by greed".

One woman, called simply LISA, showed up at Brando's Hollywood estate on Friday (02JUL04), claiming to be the movie great's daughter, but aides refused to let her past the gates.

Brando's ashes were reportedly scattered during a private family ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday (03JUL04).
