Warm Bodies - Info Regarding the PG-13 Rating

Comedy May Get Longer R-Rated Cut on DVD/BD

As vampires and werewolves had their run in recent years as the love interest of several young boys and girls in their teenage years already, it seems that zombies are next. On February 1st, 2013, the romantic horror comedy Warm Bodies will hit US theaters. Of course, it is rated PG-13 (for zombie violence and some language).

Director Jonathan Levine recently talked to Collider and shed some light on the rating, which is pretty unusual for the zombie genre. He hinted that there maybe a more violent version on DVD (or Blu-ray) that could be considered an R rated version.

 

Collider: How were you able to inject your typical irreverence into a PG-13, bigger budget arena?

LEVINE: The PG-13 thing is interesting because I’ve only ever done R-rated movies but it’s not a big deal because this movie’s not meant to be ‘R’. It’s not like I wish I could get that one extra ‘Fuck’, you know?. We have our ‘Fuck’ and we know where it is and we’re good with it. Yes, we like to push the envelope with the gore and the violence, but this movie’s about heart. It’s not about the gore and the violence even though we’ve shot some of the most disgusting things you will ever see.

Collider: Such as?

LEVINE: Eating the brains is pretty bad. I don’t think it will ever fully make it into the movie because it’s pretty hardcore.

Collider: R-Rated DVD.

LEVINE: R-Rated DVD. Exactly.
