Scream 4 Will Be Staying R-Rated

Those worried that The Weinstein Company would attempt to water down the “Scream” franchise to a PG-13 like they did with the recent “The King’s Speech”? Worry no longer.

The MPAA has awarded the film an R-rating for “strong bloody violence, language and some teen drinking”.

The previous three films in the series were all rated R, the first in particular earned its R after repeatedly submissions to the MPAA after it was initially granted an NC-17.
