Quentin Tarantino on Django Unchained miniseries

Tarantino wants to release a four hour version of Django Unchained as a cable TV mini-series...

Hands up who thought Django Unchained was roughly two hours too short? Er...

One hand in the air belongs to Quentin Tarantino, who's been chatting about his plans to collect the ninety-plus minutes of unseen footage from the cinematic release of the film and incorporate it into a four-hour cable TV miniseries.

Speaking at Cannes, the writer/director said "I have about ninety 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 miniseries. 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."

He's not wrong. Whether Tarantino's miniseries plans will see the light of day remains to be seen, but with TV versions of From Dusk Till Dawn and countless other movies around and doing well, he's certainly not the only filmmaker around considering a home for his work on television.

Hahaha. Made me LOL out loud.

I would love to see the Burbs as tv show count me in

Wow, guess Dusk til Dawn is making loads of money then?

I actually did feel Django Unchained was too short. There were a lot of events and characters that were glossed over and made the film seem rushed if not incomplete.
