Sacha Baron Cohen's new film, 'Bruno' is to be edited into a teen friendly version.
A specially 15-rated version of the hit comedy comes after the controversial film achieved a record-breaking takings for an 18-certificate comedy.
The film took a staggering £18.9 million in the US and a further £15.6 million internationally on its opening weekend.
Universal Pictures International president David Kosse said: "For Bruno to become the biggest 18 opening Friday of all time in the UK is phenomenal.
"Due to the overwhelming demand by fans, who are desperate to see the film, we're really pleased to be able to offer a 15-certificate version.
"Both of these versions will allow many more of Bruno's fans in the UK to enjoy the film."
Baron Cohen's character Bruno, the outrageous Austrian fashionista, is presented in the film in a no-holds-barred style of the 'mockumentary' genre.
It has been criticised by Austrian officials and labelled homophobic by gay rights groups.
The edited version will be released on Friday July 24.
