March 28, 2012 - Prometheus / Ridley Scott on R-rating or not
Scooped on Wednesday, March 28, 2012
In an exclusive interview with Empire magazine, Prometheus director Ridley Scott is asked whether his latest film will carry an R-rating (like the original Alien did) or if the rumors are true and the studio is demanding a PG-13 rating. The filmmaker dealt with the question in his own way and gave this answer:
"Right now I don’t know where we are. The question is, do you go for the PG-13, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Financially it makes quite a difference, or the risk makes quite a difference, and yet you also have to apply the question — if you soften it, will you financially suffer? As opposed to just going for the throat and gambling. Essentially, it’s kinda R. The little bastards will still get in anyway, so what’s the difference? It’s not just about blood, it’s about ideas that are very stressful. I’m not an idiot, but I’ll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can."
Empire also has several new photos and interviews with the supporting cast members of Prometheus. Some new details about the crew members are given in the profiles.
