Deadpool - Producers Fear the NC-17 Rating

There May be a Fight for the R-Rating

For years, director Tim Miller and lead actor Ryan Reynolds fought for a chance to give the popular but not really mainstream comic character Deadpool a film adaptation that is true to the character. It's no surprise that this was a rocky road considering that superhero movies are as mainstream as they come and the PG-13 almost always a prerogative in this day and age.

It took 6 years until the studio finally gave in and agreed to a film that would go all-in with violence and humor that are directed at an adult audience. For 4 years, 20th Century Fox was in favor of a mass-appealing PG-13 version but X-Men Origins: Wolverine showed painfully clear how harmless and unauthentic that portrayed the character. The film will thus be rated "R" as the makers envisioned it.

But there might still be problems with the rating. The producers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick told Collider that the MPAA could be upset with some things the film shows:

Collider: Some movies go just pure over the R-rated line and some movies go really far with R, what are you guys doing?

WERNICK: We may have to appeal for an R rating as opposed to an NC-17.

REESE: Yeah. I mean, we have all the things I think that make a movie R: Language, Sex, and Violence. And so I would say we’re a reasonably hard R, though that’s certainly in play if it gets too gory and it might turn some folks off, we have to find the right line.

We'll see if that really becomes true and whether cuts would be necessary or a successful appeal hearing could avoid that. The similar ironic and violent Kick-Ass movies had no problems getting the "R".
