Their plan is quickly thwarted when an alarm sounds. Sony Pictures acquired the script in June 2011. Nicholas Stoller was in early talks to direct but eventually backed out with Jake Kasdan instead directing the picture. Principal photography began on September 12, 2013, in Newton, Massachusetts.

A HIGHLY controversial Danish film in which the characters pretend to be retarded and engage in some of the most explicit sex scenes outside the world of hard-core movies has been cleared for cinema release by the British Board of Film Classification. The uncut version of Lars Von Trier’s The Idiots, a comedy about a commune of young people who isolate themselves by pretending to be mentally ill or retarded, features a fleeting sexual penetration scene and erect penises in a group sex sequence.
It premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival on a wave of notoriety about its copious sex and nudity. Although it received a further screening at the London Film Festival last November, there were doubts about whether it would receive the all- clear for a national cinema release in its unabridged form. The film’s UK distributor, Metro Tartan, submitted The Idiots for classification at the beginning of December and its relatively swift sanction marks the second significant decision by Robin Duval, who took over as director of the BBFC from James Ferman four weeks ago. The fact that Mr Duval has wasted little time in both approving The Idiots and granting The Exorcist a video release will be seen by many in the film industry as evidence of the new regime’s determination to act decisively rather than let difficult issues drag on indefinitely, as has happened in the past with films such as Crash. Although the sight of penetrative sex and erect penises is not unprecedented in British high street cinemas – the 1991 Japanese film In the Realm of the Senses featured both, – it is extremely rare.
