Tarantino Might Recut The Extremely Long Once Upon A Time In Hollywood To Make It Even Longer

It's currently at two hours and 39 minutes, but Quentin fancies a bit of tinkering

Quentin Tarantino makes very long films. They're good films, and they're long films. He's only released eight full features so far, and yet a back-to-back marathon would run to 20 hours and 53 minutes. Perhaps in a bid to crack the 24-hour mark with Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, he's revealed that he might add extra bits and pieces to the version which screened at Cannes.

At the moment, Once Upon A Time runs to two hours and 39 minutes (six minutes shorter than the original Cannes announcement described it as being), a run time which Sony has officially confirmed.

That puts it squarely in the middle ground of late-period Tarantino's run times: his longest theatrical release is The Hateful Eight, which ran to two hours and 48 minutes, and Django Unchained went to two hours and 45 minutes. However, there might still be some tinkering to come.

"I may make it longer," Tarantino told Indiewire yesterday. The first broad cut of Once Upon A Time ran to four hours and 20 minutes, according to Tarantino, so he's got a lot of extra material to work with.

"I wouldn’t take anything else out," he continued. "I’m going to explore possibly putting something back in. If anything, I wanted to go to Cannes too short. If I’m going to err, I’m going to err on too tight."

Michael Madsen and Tim Roth will presumably both be buoyed by this news, given that they were completely cut from the Cannes version of Once Upon A Time. Chin up, lads.
