You think Zack Snyder’s 4-hour cut in the Justice League is an exaggeration? If we are to believe Margot Robbie, Quentin Tarantino is hiding a 20-hour cut of his latest opus Once upon a time in Hollywood in a vault somewhere in Los Angeles.
The actress was recently asked about the likelihood that DC Comics fans will ever see the Suicide Squad Ayer Cut, which reportedly features invisible footage of her Harley Quinn interacting with Jared Leto’s Joker. Instead of celebrating this possible release from HBO Max, she decided to tease fans with a much longer Tarantino cut for her Sharon Tate performance. She confirms a once upon a time version that runs for almost a full day, but it’s April Fool’s Day so she may be overdoing it.
Margot Robbie spoke to Variety when she realized there was an incredibly long version of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The Snyder Cut has been the subject of online film forums for months. Now that it has finally arrived, cinephiles are wondering what other exotic and flamboyant cuts there are in the wild. Robbie offers this tease.
“There’s a 20-hour cut of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that … there’s so much more that we haven’t seen that we filmed that was amazing and obviously possible for a million reasons not the cut. ”
Margot Robbie does not mention anything about the possible release of this additional footage or what it might contain or reveal. Quentin Tarantino, on the other hand, has confirmed that there are many additional shots from the film that could see the light of day on Netflix. He has or at least had plans to cut Once Upon a Time in Hollywood into multiple episodes, using never-before-seen footage and making it a whole new experience, much like he turned The Hateful Eight into a streaming miniseries for Netflix. There hasn’t been an update for a while.
Margot Robbie has offered what she knows about The Ayer Cut of her original suicide commission. It appears that Warner Bros. is keeping this version under the desk for possible later use, as the studio is currently promoting James Gunn’s quasi-sequel, The Suicide Squad. Regarding the Ayer Cut, Robbie sounds like a lot of the naysayers who claimed we’d never see the Snyder Cut in all of its 4 hour glory.
“There’s no David Ayer edit in the works or released.”
Everyone agrees whether or not we’ll ever see longer cuts from Suicide Squad or Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. But it’s likely that the studios will sign up at some point when the fans are hungry enough. Apparently Quentin Tarantino really want to expand Once Upon a Time in Hollywood into a miniseries that gives us more of Cliff Booth and Rick Dalton. This news about the 20-hour cut was first shared by Margot Robbie. This message is from Variety.
