ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD 4-Hour Cut ‘Probably’ Coming Next Year
Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie is a new masterpiece.
The movie snagged Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for Brad Pitt, and Best Screenplay at the Emmys. And today we hear Tarantino still plans to release a 4-hour cut of the film.
He tells Collider: “It’s all good. It’s all great. I don’t know if an audience would sit for it, but I love it. So once this whole thing is said and done, maybe in a year’s time, we probably will [release it].”
The film snagged an 85% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: Thrillingly unrestrained yet solidly crafted, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood tempers Tarantino’s provocative impulses with the clarity of a mature filmmaker’s vision.
It centers on actor Rick Dalton who gained fame and fortune by starring in a 1950s television Western but is now struggling to find meaningful work in a Hollywood that he doesn’t recognize anymore. He spends most of his time drinking and palling around with Cliff Booth, his easygoing best friend and longtime stunt double. Rick also happens to live next door to Roman Polanski and Sharon Tate – whose futures will forever be altered by members of the Manson Family.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino who also produced along with David Heyman and Shannon McIntosh. It stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Emile Hirsch, Margaret Qualley, Timothy Olyphant, Austin Butler, Dakota Fanning, Bruce Dern, Al Pacino, and Kurt Russell. Sony Pictures released it back on July 26, 2019.
