Home video versions of The Wolf of Wall Street will NOT be an hour longer

Jan. 28, 2014by:

UPDATE: Paramount and Red Granite have reached out to inform us that there will be no extended director's cut of the film. The home video release will be the same as the theatrical, despite claims made by Daily Mail.

Earlier this month director Martin Scorsese said he didn't think his four hour cut of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET will be released, but according to producers Joey McFarland and Riza Aziz, the extra hour will be added to Blu-ray and DVD versions of the film. McFarland and Aziz were at the Directors Guild of America Awards, where they talked a little to The Daily Mail about the longer version.

Here's McFarland on the four hour cut:

"I think we are going to have some good surprises to be honest with you the movie is not much different in its longer form, it's just longer versions of scenes. Nothing really got cut out so it's a lot more of what you've already seen."

Aziz also added that, "the sex scenes run a little longer but nothing extreme," in the longer version, and it will feature 25% more F-bombs. Ok, so he was slightly kidding with that last part, but it isn't too surprising considering the film holds the record for most uses of the naughty word for a drama.

Some may think a longer version of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET is unnecessary because it's already three hours long and Martin Scorsese is happy with the cut that was released into theaters, and others might think it'll just be more of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jordan Belfort getting f*cked up and having sexy time. However, I really want to check out the four hour cut. I don't think the longer version will be better than the original, but I'm still very interested in seeing what Martin Scorsese decided to cut from his film.

Don't buy this.

Scorsese has never given any indication that he would release a directors cut. He doesn't believe in them. Highly doubt that this is true.

bring it on

i dont mind longer movies. Im paying good money to see a movie and i want the most movie i can get.. I think an epic like this should be 3 hours. It flowed really well and never felt overly long. That being said, i'm excited for an extended version. I think having an extended version is one of the few reasons to buy the movie on DVD/Bluray anymore. Give people the option to watch more of the movie they love. You can pause and leave it at home any time you want and not miss a thing. Give people

More is better.

I haven't seen it yet but wait til video and be comfy watching for the potty breaks. Also would have loved a Goodfellas extended cut if there was.

4 hours. Ouch. That is just too long.

But then I like the idea of options, one can always buy or see the shorter version.

Great movie

But the 3 hours was a stretch. In the middle it seemed to drag at times. Everything that they got in was fine. This isn't like the Lord of the rings extended editions where they added extra meaningful scenes, this sounds like it's just filler.

As long as I can also watch the (probably superior) theatrical cut as well, I'm happy with this. It will be interesting to see the ways the film is different.

Will we have the choice on the blu ray to watch either the 'Theatrical Cut' or 'Extended Cut'?

Wondering if both cuts will be available on disc?
Yeah what a dumb thing to ask.

I really enjoyed this film and wouldn't mind seeing another hour of it...but definitely from the comfort of my couch. Three hours was getting taxing on my backside in theaters.

WOWS was 3 hours, but didn't feel like it. I had a blast with this movie. Sure, everything in it was morally horrifying, but it was still fun to watch. I'm picking this up first day it's released

It's an excellent film but I don't see what we'd be missing with an hour's worth of "extended" scenes. It's paced very well but objectively, is probably already too long as is.

I could have easily have watched another hour of this film in theaters. The movie goes by so quickly that it doesn't feel like a long film.

But yeah, seeing what Scorsese left out should be interesting.

Movie was at least an hour too long as it is. 4 hours of repetitive scenes? No thanks.

As if it weren't an exhaustive movie already. I don't know how much more I can take!

Seriously, this is good news I think. If Scorsese's ready to unleash his 4-hour version on the world, then let him. I want to see what sorts of sordid details were left out of the theatrical version that are still worthy of the blu-ray.
