Hi, i tried to delete an incorrect directing credit that lists me as co-director for this movie https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4579654/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_2  but the request did not pull through. Having a non existent directing credit is quite harmful for a filmaker and as I was never
the director for the film, only the fight choreographer, this credit goes fully to the chinese
director as it is reported also during the film credits. If necessary i can send you a screenshot or an extract of the film final credits roll for you to check the director's name, which is not mine. Also the movie was actually never released to the public cause of issues with censorship here in China, so maybe that is why the IMDb team cannot review the contribution as there is no public record of the film itself? Also if this is the issue should the movie still be listed? Thanks a lot for your time and greetings from Shanghai!

Hi Will,

first of all thanks a lot for the quick reply.  Attached you will find two screengrabs from the opening credits and one from the final credits roll.

"A Thief's Journey" is the english translation and title of "Shen Tou Lu Cheng"

Regards.

Chris

Hi Chris -

Thanks for posting the screen grabs, the Director credit you reported has now been removed form the title. 

Concerning the title listing on the site, I can see that there is a Release Date for November 2014 in Shanghai:https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4579654/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_ql_dt_2
if the title was screened then the title is eligible and will need to remain listed on the site.  However, if this Release Date is wrong and title was never screened, and if the title is inactive and is not going to be screened, then this would be a case for removal.  If the latter is true for this title, you will need to request the deletion by selecting the "Title -> Delete a title" option on our Contact Form.
