The King’s Speech has gotten stellar reviews and multiple Oscar nominations, and yet executive producer Harvey Weinstein wants to re-cut the movie to make it a PG-13 flick instead of R.
“The British numbers are huge because the rating lets families see the movie together. Tom and I are trying to find a unique way to do this that keeps his vision of the movie.”
Most of the cuts would entail removing the “F-word,” which plays a prominent role in certain scenes.
We think this is a BIG mistake!! The movie is so successful as it is! Changing it could ruin it!!
