Kevin Smith’s upcoming Bruce Willis/Tracy Morgan comedy "A Couple of Dicks" has a new name according to the Film Stage.

According to Film stage: Smith has been Tweeting for days about how unfortunately the title "A Couple of Dicks" cannot be used due to lack of marketing approvals but a new title had been selected that would be better than the previously considered "A Couple of Cops."

Reports from Warner Bros. Web site have revealed that the likely new name for Kevin Smith’s upcoming film will be "Cop Out."

The site also reports that there finally will be a trailer for the new film and that it will premiere with "Sherlock Holmes" alongside a new trailer for Christopher Nolan's "Inception".

I really think sometimes the controversy of title changes can be overblown and take away from the actual project itself. Having said that, it’s understandable why the studio would want to change the name, and it’s also good they chose “Cop Out” over “A Couple of Cops,” which was the title they were working with.

The combination of Smith, Willis and Morgan could turn out to be hilarious. Smith is such a huge film fan himself, a very original director, and this project could be his next "great" movie after the mixed reaction to “Clerks 2” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.”

“Cop Out” will be released February 26, 2010.
