Babylon A.D. Getting US Cuts

Twitchfilm reports that one of the big reasons for the six-month delay of Vin Diesel sci-fi flick “Babylon A.D.” is because of editing.

The article indicates that “Europeans are getting a longer cut of the film in theaters in early 2008 while Fox, which holds rights in most non-European regions, have requested a significantly shorter version of the film.”

The Euro version of the Mathieu Kassovitz directed tale is said to run for a whopping 160 minutes, a number Fox will likely want cut by at least half an hour. The US release is presently scheduled for August 29th 2008.
