Tarantino to release 4-hour Django Unchained mini-series?
The Cannes film festival is home to all sorts of weird and cool news (how about that EXPENDABLES 3 convoy?). Quentin Tarantino dropped some ideas on a theater audience about possibly editing together a 4-hour cut of DJANGO UNCHAINED. Furthermore, his plans for presenting this extended version of Django would be a little bit different.
Here's what Tarantino had to say:
I have about 90 minutes worth of material with Django. It hasn't been seen. My idea, frankly, is to cut together a four-hour version of Django Unchained. But I wouldn't show it like a four hour movie. I would cut it up into hour chapters. Like a four-part mini-series. And show it on cable television. Show it like an hour at a time, each chapter. We'd use all the material I have and it wouldn't be an endurance test. It would be a mini-series. And people love those. The movie concept would be too much. People roll their eyes at a four-hour movie. But a four-hour mini-series that they like, then they are dying to watch all four parts. That's how I thought it could work.
This sounds very similar KILL BILL: THE WHOLE BLOODY AFFAIR, but I do like his idea for approaching it as a mini-series. I think that would be much easier for the general populace to take in, even if die-hard fans would swallow the whole thing in one gulp.
Can we commission another stand-up from this man, please?
