Reuters writes that Martin Scorsese's "The Departed"
( will not be shown in (mainland)
Chinese theaters. The reason apparently is the plot line in which Chinese
government agents attempt to purchase advanced weapons technology.
According to Reuters' source, censors believed the Chinese portion of the
story was "unnecessary." What they meant by this, it seems, is that it was
unnecessary for the weapons purchasers to be Chinese. Said the source: "
The regulators just cannot understand why the movie wanted to involve China.
They can talk about Iran or Iraq or whatever, but there's no reason to get
China in."
