Holiday Parlor Game: Rename THE SWITCH
The good news is that Elmore’s 70s era novel, THE SWITCH may be made into a movie soon, touted as a prequel to JACKIE BROWN, with three of Tarantino film’s main characters (minus Jackie Brown.) The bad news is that a Miramax film called THE SWITCH is coming out August 20 starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman and a Turkey Baster.
JUSTIFIED was called LAWMAN last Fall, until Steven Seagal’s LAWMAN, his short lived New Orleans’ cop show, came along. So FX changed it to JUSTIFIED.
Will it really matter if THE SWITCH comes out a year or more from now with the same title? Probably.
So, a little parlor game. What would be a good substitute title for THE SWITCH? Elmore’s original title was MICKEY FREE, which makes a nice couplet with JACKIE BROWN, Tarantino’s movie title for Elmore’s novel, RUM PUNCH.
Of course, it will help to read the book. Buy it here.
Should THE SWITCH remain THE SWITCH?
Should Elmore’s original title MICKEY FREE be used?
Should the word DETROIT be in the title?
