The King’s Speech Director Does NOT Want To Re-Cut The Film For A PG-13 Rating

the kings speech director wont cut film

Given all the awards that The King’s Speech has been nominated for AND won, MAYBE it’s good as it is???

Harvey Weinstein doesn’t seem to think so, and he’s working on a new marketing strategy to clean up profane dialogue from the film, in an effort to bring it down to a PG-13 rating.

The King’s Speech director Tom Hooper does not support making any cuts to the film, and we don’t blame him in the least!

Here’s what Hooper had to say about it:

“I wouldn’t support cutting the film in any way. I think we looked at whether it’s possible to bleep out the f*cks and stuff, but I’m not going to actually cut that part.”

Good for you, Tom! You directed a wonderful film, which is a strong candidate for Best Picture at the Oscars, and it would be absurd for you to have to cut the film at this stage of the game!

To quote the Beatles’ immortal words, let it be, Harvey!

Do U think The King’s Speech should be cut? Or should it stay as is?
