BEIJING, April 10 (UPI) -- Sony Pictures says some of the gore in Quentin Tarantino's blood-soaked, 19th century epic "Django Unchained" is to be toned down for its release in China.

Zhang Miao, a spokesman for the film's distributor, told China's Southern Metropolis Daily the director had agreed to "slight adjustments," such as turning "the blood to a darker color" and "lowering the height of the splatter of blood."

"What we call bloodshed and violence is just a means of serving the purpose of the film," he said. "Quentin knew how to adjust that, and it's necessary that he is the one to do it."

Tarantino earned an Oscar for writing "Django" while Christoph Waltz won Best Supporting Actor.
