'The Night Watchman' Is Now 'Street Kings'

Keanu Reeves' new police thriller gets a new name.
Because of consumer confusion, the David Ayer directed drama The Night Watchman has had it's title changed to Street Kings. Ace Show Biz claims that this decision came because the general populace was getting the film mixed-up with Warner Brother's highly anticipated comic book adaptation Watchmen.

An official announcement from the studio is forth coming. The film stars Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, and Chris Evans. The storyline follows an LAPD cop that is still grieving over the loss of his wife. When he is framed for the death of a fellow officer, he must confront those he works for and the entire system that he has devoted his life to.

Street Kings will debut on April 11th. 2008.

Street Kings was released April 11th, 2008 and stars Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Laurie, Chris Evans, Cedric the Entertainer, Jay Mohr, Terry Crews, Naomie Harris. The film is directed by David Ayer.

    Yeah, the first thing I thought of when i read the first title was watchmen, but u can't get that movie mixed up with this piece of crap. It sounds like a rip off of what rad said, the negotiator. The name sucks.

    ok lets read it again.... "Ace Show Biz claims that this decision came because the general populace was getting the film mixed-up with Warner Brother's highly anticipated comic book adaptation Watchmen." Neo's movie is not the comic book adaptation slowcrow lol.

    'The Night Watchman' sounded really cool than 'Street Kings'. It was more close to the adapted comic book. Doesn't matter much but good to see Keanu back in action!!
