Hitman downgraded to soft PG-13?
Posted 10.14.07 by reelz
That's what Twitchfilm.net reported earlier this week relating to widespread net rumors that director Xavier Gens had been stripped of control on the video game adaptation. Reportedly, Fox brought in Nicolas De Toth to tone down the film, possibly even from hard "R" to "PG-13" territory. De Toth previously edited the bloodless version of Live Free or Die Hard.
In an official statement of reponse from Fox, the studio claims De Toth has been brought in as a consultant rather than as an editor and that the film will go out with an "R"-rating and Gens is still involved. We'll see. De Toth's involvement certainly seems contradictory to Fox's claim.
We'll bring you more on Hitman as we hear it.
