Mena Suvari's sexy new film re-cut for lower rating

Movie bosses have re-edited a sexy scene in Mena Suvari's upcoming movie The Knot to land a less-restrictive age rating in Britain.

Film regulators in the U.K. were poised to slap an 18-classification on the romantic comedy, which also stars Talulah Riley, meaning viewers under the age of 18 could not see the movie.

However, distributors were keen to land a 15 rating to open the film up to a younger audience - and as a result, they've re-edited a saucy strip club scene.

A statement from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) reads, "(The) distributor chose to reduce a focus on sexualised female nudity in a strip club scene in order to achieve a 15 classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 18 classification was available."

The movie is set for release in October (12).
