CBS films wants to change the title of "The F Word" starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan.
A bad title can ruin a perfectly good movie. But worse than a bad title is when a film with a great name gets a title change for stupid reasons.
That’s what may be happening to “The F Word,” a new Canadian romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan.
“The F Word,” the latest movie from “Fubar” and “Goon” director Michael Dowse, was extremely well received at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and thanks to its strong showing, the film scored a U.S. distribution deal with CBS Films. Set in Toronto, “The F Word” centres on the relationship between a heartbroken young man named Wallace (Radcliffe) and Chantry (Kazan), a girl who also happens to be in a long-term relationship. The film’s title is a reference to the dreaded “friend zone” that the two characters find themselves in, and it's an absolutely perfect fit for the movie. However, U.S. distributor CBS Films apparently isn’t convinced by the title.
