Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker in a High Concept Rom-Com!

Under no circumstances are you to ever pay to see this movie:

Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant are in negotiations to star in an untitled Marc Lawrence-helmed romantic comedy for Columbia Pictures.

Thesps would star as an estranged high-powered New York couple who witness a murder and are placed in a witness-protection program in a small Wyoming town. Lawrence penned the screenplay. Film would mark the third time Grant has collaborated with director Lawrence on a romantic comedy, after "Music and Lyrics" and "Two Weeks Notice."

OK, I've spent like an hour thinking about what this untitled project could be called, and I've got nothing. There have to be puns to exploit, but I can't come up with them. Mountaintop Manhattanites? Hidin' in Cheyenne? I've got nothing. I figure the poster would be the two of them recreating American Gothic but holding cell phones and a purse-sized dog while a mafia guy lurks in the background, but as far as titles go, I've reached a barrier. Someone help me with this.
