So what is the new title? Well…

Kevin Smith revealed during his panel at Comic-Con that his new buddy cop comedy might not be titled A Couple of Dicks after all. You might remember that Smith had some trouble with his last film Zack and Miri Make a Porno, which was forced to call itself “Zack and Miri” in some television advertisements. Smith says that Warner Bros took some steps to avoid the problem with the new film and polled television networks to see if they would have a problem advertising a film with the word “Dick” in the title.
