In a recent interview, Seth Rogen vented his feelings regarding the rating systems that determine who should or shouldn't be allowed to see a movie.
“[The ratings system] is so stupid why play that game?” Rogen said. "Why even enter a system that stupid?"
"There’s nothing more frustrating than being on set and coming up with a joke and being told you can’t do it because it’s a PG movie,” Rogen continued. “It’s like boxing with your hands tied behind your back ... because of some weird ratings structure.”
A majority of Rogen’s work tends to fall in the ‘PG-13’ or ‘R’ range, so he’s become accustomed to little kids not lining up to see his movies. Seth and his long time writing partner Evan Goldberg have a successful brand of comedy, and that brand is almost always going to get the dreaded ‘R’ rating attached to it.
Upcoming movies for Rogen include The Interview, where another bromance is bound to occur between Rogen and James Franco as they find themselves to be accidental spies tasked with assassinating North Korea leader Kim Jong-Un. In addition to that, Rogen and Goldberg have a Christmas Eve movie in the works and have been developing a series for AMC called Preacher based around the comic series of the same name.
It certainly doesn't sound like any of those projects will be getting a 'kid friendly' label!
