I wonder if this will be a PG-13?

alibolongJuly 27, 2013 5:52 PM

how can this be?

Bravo to Gareth, cast and crew, and all external factors involved in this production. Highly anticipating seeing the art your labor has wrought.

Todd BrownJuly 27, 2013 8:29 PM

Heh. Not even close.

Seriously, if this is PG-13, then the MPAA's standard level of violence must have fallen down a lot

arturoJuly 27, 2013 9:45 PM

Ok so when will we expect a red band trailer? Along with some cool character posters?

krakarJuly 27, 2013 9:49 PM

Hear hear!
Teaser coming soon please?

Todd, do you have any updates as to the development of the remake of the original? I am sincerely looking forward to it based on previous discussions about the potential cast of the remake, and I wonder if I should temper my expectations. I know that's a sore subject for most Twitch followers, but I embrace the concept with open arms if it means more quality on-screen fistifcuffs from superb martial artists.

Todd BrownJuly 27, 2013 10:28 PM

Nothing firm on the remake. Script is more or less locked, research underway on potential shooting locations and discussions happening about potential directors. Once director is locked we'll start having serious conversations about cast.

On the trailer issue, that'll ultimately be dependent on release date. The film has sold for distribution everywhere so we (as producers / sales agents) are pretty much beholden to the distributors on that front. Promotions are in their hands once they pick up the rights. I'd be surprised personally if there was any sort of trailer before things are through post as they'll want to have all the polished footage to choose from. We're not making any sort of sales reel as we don't need to sell it. But if Sony or the other distribs want to go red-band they'll have LOTS to choose from.

Todd...any chance whatsoever we can get an early cut at Fantastic Fest???

Todd BrownJuly 28, 2013 7:18 PM

Nope. Pretty much no chance it'd even have foley or anything on it then. Waaaaaaaaay too rough at that point to let it out in public.

hutchJuly 28, 2013 8:42 PM

Good news. And Good job, I'm sure.

How to become street teamer in USA for this film? I try to contact Sony but there's no contact message on the Sony web.
