Tarantino considering Django Unchained mini-series

Quentin Tarantino told an audience at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday that he’s considering reinserting some of the deleted scenes back into “Django Unchained” for a 4-hour version that could play as a mini-series for TV.

“I have about 90 minutes worth of material with Django,” Tarantino said, according to USA Today. “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,” Tarantino said.

Tarantino says people don’t want to watch a four-hour movie anymore, so it’s not even a consideration to do this as a film.

“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,” he said.
