According to a report from the ComicBook portal, the adaptation of the God of War to the big screen will be designed for audiences of age. This conclusion would have come quickly, both the director Steven DeKnight, and the executives of PlayStation, early in the discussion of the project.
One of the first things we said was that this was a classified movie R
” It’s funny because when I went down with the Sony PlayStation, one of the first things that they said was that this was a R rated film (for people of legal age) ” explained DeKnight. ” Because I always use Conan El Barbaro as a cornerstone, which needs to be for adults. ”
When it comes to film adaptations of properties outside the big screen, one of the most common debates is the focus; a violent one, but faithful to the source material, can satisfy the most purist fanatics, but reduces the size of the audience and, therefore, the possible gains; while an opposite view, you have the potential to be conquering but to a broader demographic.
” I do not think there is a way to tell that story (Conan El Bárbaro) and make it suitable for teenagers, nor should it be. And thanks to Deadpool, people are much more willing to try the R rating (for adults) so yes, it will definitely be R-Rated. That is, it does not go as far as Spartacus, which was more NC-17, but definitely for adults. “
It is important to explain that the R-rated rating, in the United States, applies to films where minors 17-year-olds can only enter the company of an adult, since the film contains some materials for adults, while there is also the NC-17 classification that does not allow access by children under 17 under any circumstances.
A similar question revolved around the film Guasón that, although it does not belong to the field of videogame adaptations, also had to opt for a more adolescent or adult approach and left for the latter, a situation that drew a smile among the majority of fans.
Sony created the PlayStation Productions division in May of this year with the aim, precisely, of adapting its videogame properties to film and television At the moment we know that there are two productions for UNCHARTED and Twisted Metal.
