(FAITHWIRE) – A Chinese filmmaker behind a movie with a title that includes the name “Moses” was suddenly rebranded to avoid offending the country’s communist regime.
During a red carpet appearance Sept. 20, director Zhang Ji told reporters the film — originally titled “Moses on the Plain” — would be renamed “Fire on the Plain,” according to Radio Free Asia.
“In this movie, we use a lot of fire as an element,” Zhang said after reporters asked him why he changed the name of the film, slated to release in December. “I hope that we can use fire to connect different time and space, emotions, and that it can shine into our lives.”
