Quentin Tarantino Flirts With A Django Unchained Miniseries

Quentin Tarantino has made it clear that the extra footage that did not make it into the final cut of Django Unchained could be used for a mini-series

Quentin Tarantino is known for having plenty of extra footage left over from shooting a film and when it comes to a film with as much shooting as Django Unchained had (pun intended) you could of put money on that the extended director’s cut of the bloody spaghetti western would be long.

However it has been revealed that the unused footage is that extensive that Tarantino is flirting with the notion of turning it into a four-part mini-series, with each part lasting an hour.

While attending a press conference celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction‘s Cannes premiere Tarantino said: “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.”

There was not a complicated ideology behind the prolific directors thoughts as Tarantino added: “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. People roll their eyes at a four-hour movie. But a four-hour miniseries that they like, then they are dying to watch all four parts. That’s how I thought it could work.”

Would you watch the four-part mini-series of Django Unchained?
