RUMOR: KA originally R- rated?

I was reading the Kansas City Star newspaper on wednsday( KA premiere) and I came across a story that Jerry Bruckheimer originally planned for the movie to be R-rated. If I remember correctly, he said he toned down the violence/ sex scenes to attract a bigger adudienc. He also did it because of the huge success of Pirates of the Carribbean(PG-13). Personally, I would have liked a R-rated version more( more violent, more of the "scene" and overall cooler. Maby it's just me, but I prefer Brukheimer's more adult movies better (Bad Boys II- now that was great!) feel free to reply

I dont know about the more sex scenes part, but the R-rated version does have more blood and guts, a dvd R-rated version will be released, he has stated that in a interview.

Bruckheimer did promise a "hard R" rating for this movie, but Disney made the cuts, not him. Their performance has been pretty poor at the box office so far this year, so in order to capture a wider audience cuts were made. But yes, Antoine Fuqua says the cut scenes will be back in for the DVD around December.

Yeah...it does seem a shame that the grittier scenes have been cut out as the film seems so dark and brooding (judging from trailers) that the grittier violence would probably (I've not seen it yet, of course) have improved the film...not sure a film like this will appeal to the typical teenybopper audience anyway, unlike POTC, so I think Disney have made a mistake here. The brooding grim nature seems more likely to appeal to adult audiences, and the fact the cast is relatively unknown (apart from Keira) outside of the UK doesn't suggest to me it'll appeal to the extra bums on seats they'll get by this softer rating. Ahhh well, such is life...still be a good film methinks.

Yeah, I kinda figured there was going to be additional content on the DVD, since Bruckheimer did comment about cutting additional, more violent, footage from the film in order to keep it at a PG-13 rating. Oh well, we will just have to wait until November/December for the goodies

Does anyone have a link to the interview in which Bruckheimer says there'll be an R rated DVD?
