Paramount Studios reportedly want director Dexter Fletcher to cut a forty second gay scene from Rocketman, which depicts Taron Egerton’s Elton John and Richard Madden’s John Reid naked in bed together, so that the biopic can be rated a 12A in the UK and a PG 13 in the US. The Daily Mail have alleged that Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn are currently in a stand-off with the Hollywood behemoth over the sequence. The scene in question, which the publication insists has been “tastefully done,” sees Elton John and his lover/manager John Reid naked in bed together with their “derrieres [on] display.” Paramount believe that this will be enough for Rocketman to receive a higher rating, which will hurt its box office expectations.
