David O. Russell's 'Nailed' Rated by the MPAA

Well this is a bit of a surprise

MPAA Ratings for Cesar Chavez: An American Hero, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Nailed, The Wind Rises
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2297

Are you ready for some rather interesting news? David O. Russell's Nailed, which had to fold up production back in 2008 after financing fell through, has been rated by the MPAA. As far as I can recall, there was one final scene to be filmed with two days left in production. Russell then quit the production in 2010 with that one final scene left to be shot, a scene that would need the cooperation of stars Jessica Biel and Tracy Morgan. I heard rumblings that the scene was shot a short while ago, but rumors are rumors. Perhaps the financiers went ahead and got this done without Russell's involvement?

I reached out to the MPAA and confirmed this was the film directed by Russell and the rating lists a Nailed Partners, LLC production company as the distributor and an online search was rather unsuccessful and the MPAA wasn't able to supply me with any more information.

Of course, Russell has been on a hot streak as of late with The Fighter and Silver Linings Playbook and has the hotly anticipated American Hustle coming out on December 13. It would only make sense for someone with the rights to the now five-year-old film to try and recoup some costs from the troubled production.

As for the rest of the bulletin, we have ratings for Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises and Chavez from Diego Luna.

Check out the complete bulletin below.

    Hmm that Nailed news is definitely interesting. Didn't think that would ever see the light of day.

    Hooray! If Nailed comes out in my town, I'll be able to see it!

    Wow was not expecting this. I had more or less given up on that film.

    Interesting indeed, very unexpected. I wonder what will come of it.

    I forgot Nailed even existed. For some reason, I feel this will be more similar to I Heart Hucakebess than his most recent work.

    I must say I wasn't expecting the PG rating for Walter Mitty. I just kind of assumed it would be PG-13.

    Now with The Wind Rises being PG-13, does this make it the first animated film to be released widely by Disney to have that rating? I know there's been two other Ghibli movies that have been PG-13. but one was released by Touchstone and the other had a VERY small release.

      The wind Rises will be released by touchstone. The previous"toucstone" release you speak off was actually released by miramax films which is princess mononoke. The other one was tales of earthsea with the limited relese.

        Ah, my mistake.

    If the final scenes were shot without Russell... who really gets the credit for the film?
