Title would be better if it were just 'Tomboy'


It doesn't need 'A Revenger's Tale' - unless they're already planning a series out of it, with different subheadings for each film.

It needs a "legacy" and a "requiem" somewhere.

There's already a well-known film from the 80s called TOMBOY that was sort of a romantic drama. Betsy Russell starred, it was huge on cable TV back then. People might assume it's a remake if it has the exact same name.

reply

Sure, but they still didn't change the title. They just added a subtitle. It doesn't sort out the confusion if there is such.

reply

The director said in an interview before its festival premiere that they finally had to change the title entirely due to legal reasons--I guess someone else owned the name "Tomboy."

reply

Looks like it's been changed.

filmratings.com

Title: The Assignment

alternate titles: Tomboy

reply

Well, being that filmratings.com is the only one purporting this title for this film, I believe they messed up. That title is not correct.
