Interesting news broke today from the Daily Caller.
Producers of the biographical documentary “Hating Breitbart” got news last week that their film received an “R” rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. And with that move official Hollywood, long the preserve of liberal culture warriors, has had what appears to be the last laugh on the late Andrew Breitbart.
Andrew Marcus, the director of “Hating Breitbart,” which was scheduled for release on Oct. 12, told The Daily Caller on Sunday that the film’s nationwide unveiling has been pushed back one week while he and his team approach the MPAA with a request for a re-hearing. That decision, he said, was made over the weekend.
Foul language, he told TheDC, was the only rationale the MPAA gave for reaching its rating decision.
Indie films often run into problems with MPAA over ratings and it appears Hating Breitbart is no exception to that rule. So what was in the film to give it an R rating?“There’s no nudity, there’s no sex,” Marcus said. “Just the occasional f-word.”
Find out on Oct. 19th!
