PG-13 “King’s Speech” coming April 1


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The rumored PG-13 version of Tom Hooper’s Best Picture-winning “The King’s Speech” has secured a release date.

The Weinstein Co. announced Thursday that the revised “Speech” will be released on 1,000 screens on April 1. It will replace the R-rated version, which no longer will be shown.

“We are thankful to the MPAA for their wisdom and swift action in approving the release of ‘The King’s Speech’ PG-13 release,” said TWC’s President of Theatrical Distribution and Home Entertainment Eric Lomis.

“The action enables those to whom it speaks most directly — young people who are troubled by stuttering, bullying and similar trials — to see it.”

“Speech” has earned nearly $360 million worldwide.
