Once Upon A Time In Hollywood: Pitt Says Tarantino Considering A Streaming Mini-Series

He's already done it once with The Hateful Eight on Netflix and now the director may be turning this summer's box office hit into an extended mini-series when it hits streaming platforms. The director is currently considering using cut footage and added content to extend Once Upon A Time in Hollywood into a longer run time that fans of the film would definitely enjoy. With a nearly three hour theatrical cut, many impatient movie goers were concerned with a movie that extended past the standard 90-100 minutes of most commercial projects. However, the film went on to be a huge financial and critical success for the director. 

When speaking with The New York Times, Brad Pitt stated Tarantino's intentions for potentially extending it to the mini-series format:

“On the other hand, I look at series where you can spend much more time on characters and story and explore angles you don’t always get to do in films.So much of these films end up on the cutting room floor because they just don’t fit in that box. That’s why I think it’s interesting that Tarantino took ‘Hateful Eight’ and ostensibly repurposed it as a three-part series. It’s almost the best of both worlds: You have the cinema experience that exists, but you can actually put more content into the series format.”

He continued when asked about if Tarantino was interested in the mini-series format:

“Yeah, he’s talked about it. It’s a pretty arousing idea.”
