'Bruno' hit with NC-17 rating

But filmmakers have not yet presented final submission

In its current incarnation, Sacha Baron Cohen's "Bruno" would earn an adults-only NC-17 rating from the MPAA's ratings board, the filmmakers have been told.

They have not yet submitted the film -- which Universal plans to release July 10 in an R-rated version -- for a final rating determination.

A follow-up to Baron Cohen's succesful 2006 film "Borat," the new films stars the improvisational comedian in the character of Bruno, a gay fashionista from Austria encountering unwitting real Americans as he makes his way across the country.
