New “Robocop” Remake Aiming For PG-13 Rating?

July 21, 2013

Sony Pictures‘ remake of ROBOCOP is featured at this years Comic Con, six months before it hits theaters on February 7th, 2014.

There was a group interview prior to the film’s panel consisting of director Jose Padilha and stars Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish.

Concerning the film’s rating, Padilha said they were pretty much aiming for a PG-13. “We were shooting the movie to be seen by the broadest possible audience, which means PG-13. This whole idea about ‘RoboCop’ has to be “R” because the first one was amazingly violent… I never really bought into that. You know, ‘The Dark Knight’ was PG-13, so you can get away with a lot.

Sam Jackson added, “It would be “R” for its time, not “R” now. Padilla agreed, “Yeah, maybe now it isn’t.

Hmmm, I don’t know if the original Robocop would pass for PG-13 today. In any case, are you interested in a PG-13 Robocop remake?
