Any self respecting nerd has seen Dean Parisot‘s Galaxy Quest; the hilarious meta spoof of Star Trek. Even director J.J. Abrams went as far as calling it “one of the best Star Trek movies ever made.”
Now, did you know the original cut of the PG film was actually rated R? Not only that, but this very adult cut is out there…somewhere. My god, imagine if someone found it? It be like finding the Ark of the Covenant, but with boobies and aliens in side. Oh how glorious it would be.
In a recent interview with Collider, John Carter producer Lindsey Collins talked about a meeting she had with star Sigourney Weaver, who subsequently told her of the originally R-rated feature. Complete with sex scenes, cursing and way more shots of Gwen DeMarco’s motherboard. According to Sigourney, this mythical cut of the movie is rumored to still be out there.
“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 of Galaxy Quest?’ She said ‘I don’t know!’ and we were like, ‘Come on, Sigourney!'”
Weaver could just be messing with everyone about this cut of the movie. But she was there, so if anyone would know it’s going to be her.
By Grabthar’s hammer, by the suns of Warvan, this should be released!
