Logan Rated R: Director James Mangold confirms rating for finale
Though if you’ve seen the Red Band trailer for the film, you already knew what to expect, Logan director James Mangold has taken to Twitter to reveal that the upcoming final Wolverine movie has officially been rated R. Mangold revealed the film earned its R rating from the MPAA for “strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.”
Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan as he cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. Directed by James Mangold and scripted by David James Kelly, the new film will mark the ninth (and said to be final) time that Jackman has played the Marvel Comics character on the big screen.
