Quentin Tarantino doesn't mind you pirating his films (as long as you live in China)

'If the Government's going to censor me then I want the people to see it in any way they can'

Quentin Tarantino’s relationship with China has been somewhat tenuous, with their censors releasing - then pulling - then re-releasing Django Unchained in 2012.

With that in mind, the director has revealed he doesn’t mind people in China illegally bootlegging his films.

"We didn't make any money on it [Django] but at the same time people saw it all over the place because they see it on bootleg out there and everything," he told ABC.

"I have a lot of Chinese fans who buy my movies on the street and watch them and I'm OK with it. I'm not OK with it in other places, but if the Government's going to censor me then I want the people to see it in any way they can.”

Tarantino is currently promoting his most recent film The Hateful Eight, which has been nominated for three Oscars.

The director recently revealed that he would like to do a horror film at some stage, “like The Exorcist”.
