Rumor: Deadpool movie aiming for PG-13 rating


Just when you dare to dream they crush you

All right. Everyone calm down. I know we were all excited when we heard that the Deadpool movie was actually going to happen, but this is Hollywood and just like they screwed up the character the first time around they're aiming to do it again. Evidently one of the reasons the movie finally got off the ground was because they "figured out" a way to do it PG-13. Speaking in the latest Meet the Movie Press over at Schmoes KnowMark Reilly said:

“I heard from the director that they finally figured out the script and it was right before this was announced … that they figured out, and you guys are all gonna hate this, they figured out how to make it PG-13 and therefore not lose its soul – that’s a quote – of the script so that they can make it.”

Not lose its soul? You just lost it. Half the soul of Deadpool is cursing, violence and crude jokes and the half is more cursing. PG-13 is losing Deadpool's soul fair and simple. Obviously there are tons of financial and logical reasons to go PG-13, but none of those reasons are that it would make a better Deadpool movie. If this is how it is going to be let's just keep it at that awesome test reel because the idea of the movie is going to be far better than whatever they make.
