Canadian director Denys Arcand is renaming his new film.
Instead of being called "Le Triomphe de l'argent" ("The Triumph of Money"), it is being rechristened "La Chute de l'empire americain" ("The Fall of the American Empire").
The movie is about a Montreal man who walks into a clothing store where two people are dead after a botched armed robbery.
He finds two bags of cash and faces the dilemma of what to do with the money.
The film, which is expected to come out June 28, is based on the 2010 killings of two people in a boutique in Old Montreal.
Arcand said in a radio interview Thursday the original title no longer corresponded to the way the film has turned out.
