Earlier this year Patty Jenkins confirmed there would be no alternate or director’s cut of “Wonder Woman” coming because there was no need – the film was so well planned that little was left on the cutting room floor.
Now, director Denis Villeneuve has admitted much the same about his upcoming sci-fi sequel “Blade Runner 2049,” saying that the substantial 2 hour and 32 minute long R-rated theatrical cut will be the definitive vision. He tells Europe Plus (via ScreenRant):
“The thing is, the movie you’re going to see is the director’s cut. There will be no further … maybe there’ll be a ‘studio version’ [laughs], maybe a producer version, but not a director’s version. That’s my director’s cut. So I don’t think there will be further versions. If there are alternate versions, they’re not from me.”
Villeneuve reportedly had nearly complete artistic freedom over the project which used real sets where possible and opted for practical over CG where it could.
