SWEENEY TODD TO BE A PG-13!?

As strange as it seems, this first appeared in the Sunday Mail and has since made its way online to various outlets. Warner Bros wants to "tone down" Tim Burton's adaptation, SWEENEY TODD, to a PG-13 Rating.

The film --starring Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall-- is a big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical thriller Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Apparently, Warner Bros wants to turn the grisley, gore, violence of the story into a "family oriented" movie? Whatever the strange reasoning behind the decision, that's what is being reported.

Here's what the Sunday Mail had to say on it:

During filming at Pinewood studios, prosthetic lookalike limbs were used (obviously the real thing would have been taking realism too far!) and they were so gruesomely lifelike that some of the crew became nauseous and had to take fresh air breaks...those on set were further spooked because there were piles and piles of sliced-up 'corpses', plus several spare 'necks' in case Burton wanted to shoot several takes of the same throat-cutting scene.

Tim Burton's SWEENEY TODD hits a limited theater release on December 21, 2007.
