The 'Inglourious Basterds' helmer says he has a fair amount of scenes that ended up on the chopping block and wants to release them on TV instead of theaters.


Quentin Tarantino expresses his desire to release a director's cut of his Oscar-winning movie "Django Unchained" on TV. There are deleted scenes clocked in at one hour and a half, and he wants to release it as a miniseries. The theatrical version is 165-minute long.

"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'," the director said at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday, May 23. "But I wouldn't show it like a four hour movie."

He elaborated, "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."

"You show people a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes. Show people a four-part mini-series and they'll sit and watch it all in one sitting."

Tarantino also talked about his other project, "The Hateful Eight". He said he had "calmed down a bit" from the shock of finding that his script leaked a few months ago. "The knife in the back wound is starting to scab," he said. "I'm in no hurry [to release the film]. Maybe I'll shoot it, maybe I'll publish it, maybe I'll do it on stage. Maybe all three."
