I try not to get too excited about a forthcoming movie these days, but I just cannot wait for Quentin Tarantino’s new film which to me looks absolutely amazing, and I’m annoyed that, seeing as I live in the UK, I have to wait another week to see it. Anyway, it seems that a hell of a lot was cut out of it, and that it’s going to follow in the footsteps of The Hateful Eight and appear on Netflix in an extended version that will be serialised. According to ‘The New York Times’, Tarantino has promised some cast members that he will include their deleted scenes back into the movie for this later version, and one of these actors confirmed this via ‘Playlist’.
“There is talk about there being a 4-hour Netflix version, as well, because there were a lot of scenes he shot that couldn’t make it into the film because there just simply wasn’t room. The promise is that like his other film, The Hateful Eight, they just done a 4-hour Netflix version. And I think they’re talking about doing the same. There are some actors like Tim Roth, wonderful actors, who never even made it into the film. I mean, they’re entire roles got cut…The Netflix version will be great too.”
An official announcement is still pending, but I can definitely see this happening. Django Unchained has an extended cut too. It’s just a shame that, with all this re-editing he’s doing on his movies, he still hasn’t given us Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Come on Quentin, we want it!
Once Upon A Time….In Hollywood is out in the UK on August 14 and, all being well, my review will be up on the same day.
