Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood might get extended as a miniseries.

Once upon a time in Hollywood was one of the most anticipated movies of this year and got released this summer of 2019. After all the controversy it created, there have been rumors saying that an extended version might be released on Netflix by the writer and director Quentin Tarantino. Tarantino was thinking to join together all the removed footage from the theatrical cut in the movie and turn it into a miniseries. Brad Pitt confirmed to the New York Times that the idea has been on Tarantino’s mind, since the same has been done with The Hateful Eight.

The Sony’s promotional trailer of the movie contained some scenes that were not included in the movie. In fact, the released theatrical cut is 2 hours and 40 minutes long, while the original one was 4 hours and 20 minutes.

These included scenes that were cut with Margot Robbie, Tim Roth, James Marsden, and Danny Strong.

After the release of the extended version of The Hateful Eight in April on Netflix, Tarantino said that he’s excited for “fuller versions” of his work to be released, and his other works may become “extended miniseries” too. But on the other side, “Kill Bill,” would never become a miniseries because all the footage that has been shot got included in two split parts of the movie.

The movie is expected to be nominated for several Oscars for next year.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood received very controversial reviews from critics and fans and has grossed over $280 million at the worldwide box office.
