‘Guilty’ Is A Go At Last

Not wanting to waste a good title, Warner Bros. has reassigned one of its previously announced but never used film monikers to Irwin Winkler’s blacklisting film “Guilty By Suspicion,” which bows March 8.

That title previously was bruited for the Meryl Streep Australian-lensed film that went out via Warners as “A Cry In The Dark.” WB had toyed with such titles as “Evil Angels” (name of the book on which that film was based) and “Azaria.”

It is not uncommon for discarded titles to pop up again since the task of clearing titles to avoid stepping on the toes of competing producers with similar names has already been done.

In the case of the Winkler film, which stars Robert De Niro as a Hollywood director suffering through the McCarthy-era witch hunt, film was previously titled “Fear No Evil” and “Dark Shadow.” Latter name obviously was a bit close to the recently revived Dan Curtis tv series.
