Constantine to get R-rating?


This link from IMDB's Constantine forum (via club-keanu) says that the MPAA has given Constantine an R-rating and also mentions that there may be some re-shooting of scenes. If true, that's good news that they won't be watering it down for a PG-13. I don't know what to think about the need for re-shoots. I'm just glad I have an excuse to use this picture.

gosh...sometimes he looks stupefyingly like my dad when he was young...

I guess it must have something to do with the starsign...given my dad is also virgo..
I know someone born almost on the same day as KR, and she looks really like the perfect twin sister...looks like a beautiful man...astrology can be so interesting and true...the fact that he intends to marry an old flame, it is all in his horoscope of this year

You know...I have been wondering about this, whether the rating story is true or not. The reshoots I can believe, especially if Reeves has been seen clean-shaven recently (although heaven knows he's put on weight since he played JC). Because don't they usually do the ratings very shortly before the film's release? Even for Matrix 2 & 3, which they *knew* were going to be R-rated, the trailers said "this film has not yet been rated".

I would love for it to be R-rated, if that is going to improve the writing and plot. If they need improving. Of course, if they are reshooting in order to blot out all of Shia LaBoeuf that would be cool. Not that I have anything against him personally, but... his role is a little PG-13-ish sounding.

I think I will go straight to A Scanner Darkly, won't pass go, or Thumbsucker, but go right to Scanner.

This does not bode well.

love how you worked this pic in again... and yay on the R-rating! who wants to see the bastard Constantine doing PG-13?!

Posted by: lori on October 12, 2004 01:08 PM

Can't wait to see Constantine...but I would love to see Scanner first!

I'm hating this: if he really has quit smoking. if he really is doing reshoots for Constantine. bummer.

Posted by: Nudel on October 12, 2004 07:26 PM

What? He quit smoking?! Thank God!

...maybe it was easy because he never really had a bad habit ;-)

Posted by: shelz on October 12, 2004 08:11 PM

*lmao* - he is a man, isn't he? ;-)

@ shelz, sorry I really have no idea if he actually has quit smoking...it's just fan speculation. Could be complete coincidence that recent paparazzi pics show him cigaretteless.

Having read a "few" of the Hellblazer series I didn't see how the hell PG 13 was gonna happen so I've been doing my happy dance with the news of the "R". I am also worried that reshooting will tempt a certain person who may be cutting down on smoking although he may not have a bad habit.....

Naughty alt tag. Naughty girl.

i find the creative process i s very interesting...

i often wonder about the amount of time and preparation the sexy one puts into his roles... he must have universal comprehension...
and it must be different for his different roles, maybe, just speculation...the more indepth stories take a bit longer maybe?
all stories with keanu in them rock!

he is one sexy boy that's for sure....

rats! you mean there's an alt tag? I only get them if it's a title tag.. :(

Reshots are normally a very bad sign.
In this case I believe that it was R rated and had to be changed for a PG13 rating.
This may be the reason it was rated so early - that Warner has the chance to order reshots and change everything in this movie.
Johnny Mnemonic has also reshots and was also cutted to death so was Feeling Minnesota. Keanu had even wearing a wig during the end of FM and he had gained a lot of weight.
It will be a problem to with Constantine - Keanu is a lot heavier now than during the filming.

Nudel - yes, there is. Or was. I just happened to catch it due to slow throughput on a clogged network connection.

Ms. Krix was just being a bit cheeky. It made me laugh and I needed that.

Posted by: V. on October 13, 2004 06:50 PM

alt/title tags fixed.
Recycled pic/code.
V. can spank me later.

*mmwwwaaaaah*smoochies* thanks!!!

I wish all those comic book fans would get on their computers and start complaining about reshooting Constantine to get back to the PG13 rating. This is not a PG13 story and it shouldn't be watered down to make it a PG13 story. Movie execs should hear the roar of the comic book fanatics.

I think that's what the forum post is saying, that it won't be PG-13.
"[...]Scenes are going to be reshot here and there now that it has officially received an "R" rating. More importantly, some of the scenes I saw won't be diluted. The mystery is finally over. This movie will only be better not having to conform to the strict guidelines of a PG13 movie from the MPAA. [...]"

By the way, I take this Matadoor as a fairly reliable source, he posted on the old Hellblazer boards for a while and it was pretty obvious he has some connection to WB.

Well, I think that if they ar reshooting scenes is for any motive but to turn the movie PG-13... they would have only to cut scenes then. For what that guy said, the movie has definitely an R rating... so, maybe they will add some scenes that were left out when WB aimed for the lower rating, and now, that itīs over, they will assume the darker tone in all itīs glory. (hope!)

FYI Club-Keanu has a new picture from the set, so the re-shoots are definitely going on.
