Sony announced the film will be re-released in cinemas starting Oct. 25, with four new scenes that make for a combined 10+ minutes of previously unseen footage. Sony has not disclosed what the new scenes will contain -- just that it would allow audiences more time in Tarantino's immersive vision of 1969 Los Angeles.
While promoting the film upon its initial wide theatrical release this summer, star Brad Pitt had revealed Tarantino was considering releasing an extended miniseries version of the film that's been re-edited for streaming services, much like he did with The Hateful Eight for Netflix.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has not been without its own fair share of controversy, with the film's planned theatrical release in China suddenly canceled, reportedly due to concerns over its less-than-flattering depiction of Bruce Lee. Despite the cancellation, Tarantino has refused to re-edit the film for Chinese audiences as he had previously done for Django Unchained.
Written, directed and produced by Quentin Tarantino, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Bruce Dern, Al Pacino, Tim Roth, Zoe Bell, Michael Madsen, Timothy Olyphant, Damian Lewis, Luke Perry, Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning.
