Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's Chinese release has been 'cancelled'

THR states in its article that Shannon Lee "made a direct appeal" to the Chinese National Film Association and asked that it "demand changes to her father's portrayal" in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's upcoming release in China has reportedly been pulled at the last minute.

Director Quentin Tarantino is used to yelling "cut" to end a scene on his films.

The comedy-drama film was originally set to hit theatres in the on October 25 after having received approval from Chinese censors.

Personal friends, as well as family members of the legendary martial artist and actor, were furious with the depiction of the action star, whereas Quentin Tarantino was defiant in response.

In the case of Django, fans opted for the pirated unedited version, but Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is different because it features Bruce Lee, who is a hero to Chinese moviegoers.

According to sources close to the Chinese dilemma, the movie's release has been put on hold for now, until the studios come up with a new version that passes their regulations.

Shannon Lee objected to her father being portrayed as an arrogant newcomer who challenges Brad Pitt's stuntman character to a fight and is subsequently thrown into a parked auto. The film was heavily edited and re-released a month later.

If you're planning to catch Tarantino's ninth film during its Chinese theatrical run, you'll have to wait a while: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood's release in the Middle Kingdom has been "indefinitely put on hold" according to The Hollywood Reporter.

China also censors content on social media based in the country, a policy that has prevented Facebook and its subsidiaries, Instagram and Whatsapp, from establishing a foothold in the Chinese market. But its outing was halted in the first days of release, apparently due to an official rethink about its level of graphic violence.
