Fox’s ‘War’ receives PG-13 rating after edits

Studio's appeal of R rating was denied Thursday

A day after denying Fox’s appeal for a lower rating, the MPAA has given a slightly edited version of “This Means War” a PG-13 rating.

Studio cut out a few sex jokes from actress Chelsea Handler, according to a source close to the project, and resubmitted the film to the Classification and Rating Appeals Board.

Pic, directed by McG, stars Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon. Pine and Hardy play best friend CIA operatives who fall for the same woman. Timothy Dowling and Simon Kinberg wrote the script.

Fox had recently appealed an R-rating given to the film, which the CARA board denied Thursday (Daily Variety, Jan. 27).

Last week, the studio bumped up “War” to open Feb. 14 to coincide with Valentine’s Day.
