Quentin Tarantino has recently gone on record saying that he has enough footage to produce a four hour television mini series based upon his beloved film Django Unchained. Is that something that you’d be interested in seeing? Is that the best way to show his over an hour and a half of unseen footage? Listen to what he has to say below.
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.
