For those who have been following the interesting saga of this film, here's the latest (official or otherwise) about the project known as Game, from co-writers/directors Neveldine and Taylor (Crank). The film's ensemble cast features Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Logan Lerman, Kyra Sedgwick, Milo Ventimiglia, John Leguizamo, Alison Lohman, Aaron Yoo, Amber Valletta, and Terry Crews.

At one point the film was known as Game. Then it was supposedly "untitled" and was going to get a new name (which some associated with the project denied, while others confirmed). Then it was Game again (unless it never wasn't otherwise). Meanwhile, a release date of September 4 was announced by several sources (including this blog). Some associated with the movie confirmed this, others denied it at the time. Then the distributor, Lionsgate, listed it with the September 4 date although some associated with the film continued to say this was not official.

Now Box Office Mojo is listing the film with the title Citizen Game. Lionsgate still lists a release date of September 4, as do BOM (above) and The Early Report (under the title Game). The filmmakers now confirm this date but not the title change.

Just sayin'...

P.S. Very clever title. Poster idea -- find the hidden rosebud!

FWIW the film's reps are not confirming the title change. Or maybe they are. Well, some are, some aren't. Stay tuned.


The filmmakers are now confirming that, as of today, Citizen Game is the new title of the film, according to their official MySpace and Lionsgate Twitter entry.
