Harvey Weinstein wants to edit Oscar-nominated “King’s Speech?”

By Sean O’Connell One would assume a movie that scores a group-leading 12 Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, was pretty close to flawless.

So why does Harvey Weinstein want to make changes to Tom Hooper’s “The King’s Speech?”

Weinstein reportedly would like to edit the R-rated “Speech,” which features foul language (but with a purpose), down to PG-13 or even PG so Hooper’s inspirational story can reach larger audiences, according to the L.A. Times.

“The British numbers are huge because the rating lets families see the movie together,” said Weinstein. “Tom and I are trying to find a unique way to do this that keeps his vision of the movie.”

It’s the next step in an aggressive “King’s Speech” campaign that begins this weekend with new Oscar advertising and an expansion to more theaters. The film, which stars Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush in the story of stuttering King George VI, has earned $57.9 million to date.
