Comic-Con 2008: Kevin Smith Talks Future Projects Plus MPAA Issues with ‘Zack and Miri’ July 26, 2008 8:15 am

Posted by Rosario T. Calabria in Comic-Con, Comic-Con 2008, Kevin Smith, Movies, News, Zack and Miri Make A Porno.

At Kevin Smith’s Comic-Con panel for Zack and Miri Make a Porno, the director talked publicly about the ratings troubles he’s been having with the MPAA.  Smith says that the film was initially given an NC-17 rating.  He made some edits and resubmitted it to the MPAA only to receive yet another NC-17 rating: “I’ve gone as far as I can go,” Smith said.  He’s now appealed the rating.  /Film writes that there are two specific scenes that the MPAA wants cut, one involves “thrusting” and the other involves acts that are “unspeakable”.  The appeal will take place on August 4th, after which if the NC-17 rating is withheld, Smith will have no choice but to make the necessary cuts as he’s contractually obligated to deliver an R-rated film.

Another thing that came out of his panel was that Smith revealed that he plans to make a film that “will test [his] abilities as a visual filmmaker.” All he’s revealed about the film is that it will be set in space.
