Pineapple Express Censored
Pineapple Express Drug Scene Cut For U.K..
In the upcoming summer blockbuster Seth Rogen was forced to cut a drug scene from his movie because the context was deemed too explicit for UK viewers.
Seth claims one scene, in which he is seen smoking a strong type of marijuana, had to be removed from the U.K. version after the British Board of Film Classification members censored the footage.
Even though the scene was left in for the U.S release. However Rogen admits he relented to the ruling because he wanted to make sure a lower certificate was given for the U.K. audience, allowing those 15 and over to see the film.
Rogan added, "We had to remove stuff from the movie to get the rating that we needed. We're actually more responsible in the U.K. than we are in the States."
"There's a scene in the movie when we sell (drugs) to high school kids - that's still in there I assume. But in the American version of the scene we also smoke weed with them and hang out."
"It's a really explicit scene of us getting high with these 11-year-olds. I think for the U.K. they've kind of softened it a bit."
Pineapple Express hits cinemas on 12th of September.
