One thing’s for sure; if you want to bring a classic story back to the screen, you’ve got to change the name. “Mirror Mirror,” “Tangled,” “Frozen,” “Elementary” -- the trend certainly points toward giving established properties cooler titles, ones that hint at the source material being adapted from. Hell, even Batman and Superman are now going by their nicknames rather than their more recognizable monikers. So it goes then, that “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” will be known simply as “Huck” when the story next finds its way to theaters.
