John Carpenter and Director Rupert Wainwright tell Bloody-Disgusting that the plan has always been to release Sony’s remake of The Fog as PG-13. Usually it doesn’t bother me other than the fact that they tell us that they are actually finding it difficult to drop the rating from an “R”. There is nothing worse than a forced rating if you ask me. Watch for a full interview and a set report in the coming weeks! A remake of the 1980 John Carpenter horror film. The original was set in Northern California, where a thick fog enshrouds the coastline. The fog is reminiscent of one 100 years before that wrecked a ship and drowned the seamen aboard. Sure enough, those salty dogs are back, mighty angry and out to kill whomever they find.
