Seth Rogen blasts Sony’s ‘clean versions’ initiative
As Sony Pictures has taken a new initiative of making family friendly versions of its films, actor Seth Rogen has criticised decision taken by one of the Hollywood’s major film studios. The initiative will allow home entertainment customers to purchase films that have been edited for broadcast television and in-flight entertainment systems. Under the initiative, scenes of graphic violence, offensive language, sexual innuendo, and other adult contents will be censored or removed from the studio’s some of the PG-13 and R-rated flicks. So far, 24 “clean version” films, including Captain Phillips, Step Brothers, and The Spider-Man series, have been made available to purchase. Seth Rogen criticised the effort on Twitter, “Holy shit please don’t do this to our movies. Thanks.” [embed]https://twitter.com/Sethrogen/status/872157050288996352[/embed] The actor is famed for his adult-themed comedies such as Knocked Up and Sausage Party, and has produced and appeared in a number of Sony Pictures films. One of his Sony Pictures, The Interview, a satire about North Korea, has even prompted a cyber-attack on the film studio. Though none of Rogen’s films have made the list of “clean version” films, the studio’s website however states that additional “clean versions” of films will be made available in the future, “The Clean Version allows viewing for a wider audience, giving people the chance to watch their favourite films together.”
