Woody Allen has officially changed the name of his latest film from The Bop Decameron to Nero Fiddled. A rep for Allen confirmed to EW that he changed the title after realizing that the previous one was garnering befuddlement instead of excitment.

“I couldn’t believe how few people had heard of The Decameron even in Rome,” Allen said in a statement after shooting in Rome all summer. “And the few that did assumed the movie was based on Boccaccio’s tales which it’s not.”

Allen will lead an impressive cast that also includes Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penélope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. But despite the impressive all-star roster, Allen noted that the title-change was necessary to create some buzz for the film. “Anyhow, I changed the title to Nero Fiddled, which is the first time I’ve changed a title since my last minute switch of Anhedonia to Annie Hall,” he said.

Nero Fiddled will be released in 2012.

    Hopefully, it will be as good as Midnight in Paris and not as awful as You Will Meet a Dark Stranger (ugh).

      My best friend has just announced her wedding with a great man who is a cele+brity!
      They met-via { millionaireluv~C-o.m }
      It is nice club for rich men or pretty girls mate.
      You do not need to be wealthy or famous, but you can meet your true love, it’s worthy a try.

        I like the new title. I can actually say it aloud and not wonder if I am saying it wrong.

    • MightyMouse

      Midnight In Paris was awful-his worse film to date. Will not see th next one.

      • Frank OFile

        Well, there are a lot of worse Woody Allen movies out there: ANYTHING ELSE, SHADOWS AND LIGHT, SEPTEMBER, etc. etc. As for MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, let’s just say I disagree.

        Wow, you are a class idiot.

  • Justin

    I like the original title better.

  • A Dingo ate my Baby

    Both titles SUCK !
    ‘Bop Decameron’ at least has some class and mystery.
    ‘Nero Fiddled’ sounds like the punch line to ‘a guy walks into a bar with a duck under his arm…..’

    Any title would be better than The Bop Decameron.

  • Jason

    Too bad: I thought “The Bop Decameron” was a *fantastic* title. The new one is just so-so for me.

  • Hollyweird

    Didn’t he fiddle the young step-daughter? And now they’re married? What a gross weirdo! Yuck!

    • Jason C.

      Way to bring up something that happened years ago and doesn’t have any bearing on the films that he makes… Way to be relevant!

      • Hollyweird

        It is relevant D U M B A S S -Woody Allen still is a sick PERV who’s movies I have never watched since. He basically married his daughter. What a PIG!

    • nellie

      Incest is gross yet strangely erotic.

    • Dave

      It was his step daughter. They were’nt even related. He was guilty of little more than poor taste. Really, the whole idea is kinda hot.

  • Frank OFile

    NERO FIDDLED isn’t much of an improvement.
