Snip, snip, snip and an X-rated flick becomes a G-rated children’s movie

Major adult video studio Digital Playground has sold 500,000 copies of its X-rated adventure flick “Pirates,” which was released in 2005.
The sequel, “Pirate’s II: Stagnetti’s Revenge,” released last fall, is shaping up to be a record-breaking title for the Van Nuys, Calif., company, says Digital Playground Chief Executive Samantha Lewis.
Digital Playground describes “Pirates II” as the most expensive adult movie ever. It features lavish costumes and sets and over 600 special effects. It stars leading adult film actress Jesse Jane.
Like its predecessor, “Pirates II” has been edited for an R-rated version to be made available at Blockbuster, Hollywood Video and elsewhere, Lewis says.
In an interview at the 2009 Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas, Lewis told me that the movies stand on their own without the hardcore sex scenes.
“We shot the movie and added the sex in,” she said.
In fact, Digital Playground even made a G-rated version of “Pirates” for the Japanese market, Lewis says.
Can you imagine loving some innocent movie as a kid, only to find out later that scenes actually climaxed in a whole different way?
Maybe there's an unedited version of “The Wizard of Oz” that I haven't seen yet.
