The film, which opens on April 11th, has been lowered to a PG-13 following a hearing from Reitman and Lionsgate's Erik Feig. The R was for "brief strong language" which generally implies the film went over the allowed single non-sexual use of the F-word by a PG-13 feature.
While it may have lost an R, filmmaker David Cronenberg has gained one for his new film "Map to the Stars" from EOne. The film's R is said to be due to "strong disturbing violence and sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some drug material."
John Cusack, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Olivia Williams and Sarah Gadon star in the satirical story of a twisted Hollywood dynasty.
