Tom Hooper Will Not Support Recut of The King's Speech

tom_hooper_getty_120.jpgIt looks like The King's Speech still might deserve that Best Picture Oscar, at least if Tom Hooper has any say in the matter. The Directors Guild Award winner told EW on Saturday that he wouldn't be comfortable with Harvey Weinstein recutting his Oscar favorite to get a lower, more box office-friendly rating. "I wouldn't support cutting the film in any way. I think we looked at whether it's possible to bleep out the f*cks and stuff, but I'm not going to actually cut that part," said Hooper. "I'm not going to cut the film." Now, that doesn't mean Harvey won't cut the film, but there you go. Controversy momentarily averted. [EW]
