The film is directed by Simon McQuoid from a script by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham. Releasing in theaters and on HBO Max on April 16th, the is still being edited by McQuoid but he confirmed that “it’s definitely not gonna get a PG-13 rating.”

He continued, “Out of context this quote might seem incendiary, it’s not: The rules around ratings aren’t what a lot of people think they are. It’s amount of blood, it’s amount of red, it’s interpretation of how you go about it. We had a lot of discussions about getting the balance right so there was gore and there was blood and there were fatalities. And there is gore, blood, and fatalities.”
