LONDON, May 1 (UPI) -- A British minister has turned down a request by makers of the movie, "The Outlaws," to film in his church because the flick is too graphic.

The Rev. Nick Bromfield told the Telegraph he turned down the request by director Nick Love because he was "appalled" by the language used in one of Love's earlier films, "The Business."

"I got the promotional pack for the film they wanted to shoot and alarm bells began ringing," said Bromfield, 46, vicar of St. Mary the Virgin church in St. Briavels.

He said the synopsis of "The Outlaw," starring Sean Bean and Bob Hoskins, was similar to "The Business" and was just too violent.

A spokesman for Vertigo Films said a new location is being sought.
