Prometheus as PG-13 version in cinemas?

Ridley Scott talks about the possible rating

Together with The Hobbit, Ridley Scott's Prometheus is clearly one of the most anticipated films of 2012. Scott initially wanted to make Alien 5 but was dismissed because the estimated budget was too high for 20th Century Fox, who didn't want to put out 250 million Dollars for an R-rated movie.

Scott then came up with the idea to create Prometheus, which is not a sequel to the Alien franchise but a film that is based in the same universe. The first pictures, teasers and trailers generated an enormous hype among sci-fi fans. One of the main questions is what rating Prometheus would get.

It wasn't submitted to the MPAA yet, but Ridley Scott talked to Empire about the possible classification. He said the following:

The question is, do you go for the PG-13, [which] financially makes quite a difference, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Essentially, it's kinda R. [...] It's not just about the blood, it's about ideas that are very stressful. I'm not an idiot, but I'll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can.

In the end, the studio will surely have a say in the process and it's questionable whether Fox takes the risk to have it rated "R" for its theatrical run.

Prometheus starts on June 8th, 2012 in US cinemas while the UK get it earlier on June 1st, 2012.
