“Hating Breitbart” Slapped With ‘R’ Rating – Delaying Release Date
Producers with “Hating Breitbart” announced this weekend that the film was slapped with an ‘R’ rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. That means the film will likely be delayed a week while the producers and his team approach the MPAA with a request for a re-hearing.
The Daily Caller reported:
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.
A converted conservative whose political apostasy pleased his admirers but rankled the power structure in his native Los Angeles, Breitbart was never at a loss for words. And some of those words were decidedly profane. 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.
