Bloody Disgusting is reporting that prior to RoboCop’s panel at SDCC they attended a group interview with director Jose Padilha and stars Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Joel Kinnaman and Abbie Cornish.
When asked about 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.”
While you mull over the thought of a PG-13 RoboCop there’s more.
