After narrowly losing an appeal to lift an X rating, the producers of "Scandal" said Friday that they would re-edit an orgy scene and resubmit the film Monday in hopes of being granted a more commercially viable R rating from the Motion Picture Assn. of America. Producer Steve Woolley, who flew from London to New York Thursday, said he does not intend to shorten the orgy scene but will construct a less explicit version this weekend with previously unused footage. An association appeals board voted 8-7 Thursday to retain the X rating issued to the film last month.
