You may recall our previous update stating that “Perks” had received an R-rating. Since then, Stephen Chobsky has appealed the MPAA to rescind this rating; the appeal was successful and “Perks” has now got a PG-13 rating according to TheWrap.com.
Originally, the Classification and Rating Administration assigned the movie, which stars Emma Watson and Paul Rudd, an R based on “teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references.” The appeals board switched that to PG-13 “for mature thematic material, drug and alcohol use, sexual content including references, and a fight – all involving teens.”
And new news about Emma’s newest projects, “The Bling Ring”, has also come available. Emma herself posted a new message on her official website letting her fans know that she would be taking a semester off at Oxford to film the movie in Los Angeles before returning and completing her final semester abroad before returning to Brown University. Emma was spotted arriving in Los Angeles last night and filming is set to commence soon.
I’m just packing to go out to Los Angeles for “Bling Ring”.
I’m taking my 3rd term out of Worcester College to make sure I don’t compromise my studies or my part in the film.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to learn from Sofia and make what I think is a very important film. This is a bit of dream for me really.
So that’s my update!
I hope everyone is well.
Love Emma xx
