Once Upon a Time in Hollywood might find its way to a longer cut and in a form of a mini-series!
Nicholas Hammond, starring in the film, told that Quentin Tarantino is working on a longer cut to be dropped on Netflix. According to the actor, the extended cut is most likely to be four hours long, showcasing a fat, jam-packed cast of performers including Tim Roth, who, unfortunately, had a couple of scenes cut from the release in the theatres. Note that Tarantino’s previous movie “The Hateful Eight” also had a 4-hours long extended version released on Netflix.
Quentin Tarantino’s brand as a director is very straightforward through the years of his career. With masterpieces including Kill Bill Vol. 2, Django Unchained, Reservoir Dogs, The Hateful Eight, and how can we forget the great Pulp Fiction, yeah? This guy’s a legend in the industry. Doing Once Upon A Time In Hollywood just made it more exciting, even more as he’s working with some of the best actors in the business as well.
“There are talks that there’s going to be a 4-hour Netflix version. Because there’s a lot of things [Tarantino] shot that couldn’t make it into the film because there simply just wasn’t room. It’s two hours and forty minutes long and you have to cut it somewhere,” said Hammond.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, nailing the role of Rick Dalton, a struggling TV actor of his time. His grip for action just wasn’t the same as before, losing it slowly. Brad Pitt plays Cliff Booth in the mini-series. A strong and inspiring individual considered to be the heart and drive of the movie.
These are just snippets of the actors, though, alongside them are Bruce Dern, Luke Perry, Mike Moh, Kurt Russell, Emile Hirsch, the beautiful Margot Robbie, and the legend that is Al Pacino.
The movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is scheduled to release in August. The exact date may vary depending on your country.
