India Will Not See the Hollywood Version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

According to entertainment industry sources, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will not be shown in theaters in India.

The Sony/David Fincher/Rooney Mara/Daniel Craig version of the film was to be released on February 10, but India’s Central Board of Film Certification insisted that several scenes be edited.

Director David Fincher refused to cut the controversial scenes, which included nudity in the love-making scenes and the troubling rape and torture scenes.

Sony acknowledged that it would not be opening the film in India and released a statement, which read in part, “While we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the Board.”

According to TheWrap.com, the film has already made nearly $100 million in the U.S. and more than $165 million at the overseas box office, and appears on its way to more than $200 globally, with much of Asia still ahead.
