A COUPLE OF DICKS changed to COP OUT?
There has been some buzz in the past week about the title of Kevin Smith's newest film. Originally, the film was titled A COUPLE OF DICKS, then it was changed to A COUPLE OF COPS, and after much fan outcry it was once again changed back to A COUPLE OF DICKS. After TV stations refused to run ads that say "DICKS" until after 9 PM, Smith knew it had to be changed. But, it looks like the new title might have been figured out!
Check out all the evidence after the jump!
One of the first bits of evidence came out after this tidbit was posted on the News Askew web page.
"The Movie Formerly Known as A COUPLE OF DICKS has finally settled on a (network-policy-dictated) replacement title! While we’ll always have DICKS in our hearts, the title we just now locked makes me smile on a bunch of different levels – including this 1: we can now advertise our movie properly (& ironically). And said marketing begins… on every print of SHERLOCK HOLMES, Christmas Day!"
Then, The Film Stage was reporting that the name might have been changed to COP OUT, according to this.
