Quentin Tarantino’s theatrical cut of “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” clocks in at 161 minutes, and a brief re-release added a further 10 minutes to that total.
However we do know a whole bunch more for the film was shot and fans have been wondering whether QT would do for it what he did for “The Hateful Eight” – turn it into an episodic Netflix event series cut from the film’s reported four-hour original cut.
Appearing at a special Collider FYC screening at ArcLight Hollywood recently, Tarantino spoke about asking Sony boss Tom Rothman for guidance during the process of editing down his film:
“It’s all good. It’s all great. I don’t know if an audience would sit for it, but I love it. So we showed it to Tom Rothman and it was like, ‘OK, here this all is. We know that this is a movie, but maybe you can help us out because we like everything.'”
Then Pitt interjected with the question: “The real question is are we going to get to see this one way or another?” Tarantino responded: “Hey look, it’s all good so once this whole thing is said and done, maybe in a year’s time, we probably will.”
Tarantino teased a longer director’s cut of “Django Unchained” is coming down the line a few months back as well.
