According to a report on 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 it had to be a classified movie R (for adults) “It’s funny because when I went down with the Sony PlayStation, one of the first things that they and I said that this was a R rated movie (for people of legal age), “DeKnight explained. “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 approach: a violent but faithful one. Source material, can satisfy the most purist fanatics, but reduces the size of the audience and, therefore, the possible gains, while an opposite view, has potential I would ask connoisseurs but appeal 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. & Quot; It is important to explain that the R-Rated classification, in the United States, is applied to films where children can not be found only in the company of an adult, since the film contains some materials for adults, while there is also the classification NC-17 that does not allow access by children under 17 under any circumstances.
A similar question revolved around the film Joker that, although it does not belong to the field of videogame adaptations, also had to choose between a more adolescent approach or one for adults and went for the latter, a situation That drew a smile among the majority of fans. We recall that 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.
