While Galaxy Quest was a family-friendly send-up of the genre, actress Sigorney Weaver says there was a racier cut of the film with more sex and swearing.
John Carter producer Lindsey Collins tells Collider that during a recent lunch conversation, Weaver spilled the beans on the alternate cut.
“We had lunch with Sigourney [Weaver] who was telling us that there actually used to be an R-rated version of that movie which was awesome. It was the director’s cut and it was R-rated and everybody was swearing and there were sex scenes, and the whole thing,” Collins said. “They didn’t know what to do with it, so they had to re-edit the whole thing and made it what it is today. We were like, ‘How do we get our hands on the R-rated version ofGalaxy Quest?’ She said ‘I don’t know!’ and we were like, ‘Come on, Sigourney!’”
So, would you like to see an R-rated version of the film or are you happy with the version we have?
