A PG-13 TALISMAN?
A PG-13 rating and the exclusion of a pivotal scene. That's what appears to be in the cards for director Vadim Perelman's adaptation of Stephen King's The Talisman, at least according to one of AICN's corespondent.Currently being scripted by The Ring's Ehren Kruger, The Talisman leapt out of director Mick Garris' hands last year and landed in the comfy confines of Dreamworks.
AICN's main man Quint caught up to Perelman, who hasn't even seen Krueger's script, here's a sample of Q's report:
'I asked if the studio was wanting it to get a PG-13 rating. He said of course. I then asked how he's planning on pulling off the Sunlight Home segment (my personal favorite part of the book) and Wolf's rampage and still keep it PG-13. He responded saying that he's pretty sure that the Sunlight Home segment isn't going to be included. No Sunlight Gardner burning Jack's hands? No Wolf rampage? Whaaaaaa?????
He did say that Wolf will definitely be in the film (of course) and that the reasoning behind the cut was both for time and for ratings... That the studio wants it at or under 2 hours. My question to the studio is why not make two films two hours each and include the Gardner home. How about making just one film, but 2 hours and 45 minutes long?'
