Brad Pitt Is Keen For Once Upon A Time In Hollywood To Be Turned Into Miniseries
Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hasn't even left the cinemas yet but there is already chatter about what will happen next with the project.
There has been a bit of speculation the well-reviewed film could be turned into a miniseries in the same way Tarantino's last film, The Hateful Eight, was.
Netflix snapped up the rights to the miniseries, allowing Tarantino to use all the footage shot for the film and splice it into four episodes.
Star of OUATIH, Brad Pitt, has signalled he would be keen for the latest film to be done in the same way.
Speaking to the New York Times, the actor said it was an 'arousing' idea, adding: "It's almost the best of both worlds. You have the cinema experience that exists, but you can actually put more content in the series format."

According to Indie Wire, the original length of OUATIH was a whopping four hours and 20 minutes, whereas the theatrical release was two hours and 40 minutes. So there is definitely scope for the movie to be turned into different parts.
Tarantino says when he was approached with the idea of up with splicing The Hateful Eight into different episodes, he thought it was incredible.
"I thought, wow, that's really intriguing," Tarantino said to /Film. "I mean, the movie exists as a movie, but if I were to use all the footage we shot, and see if I could put it together in episode form, I was game to give that a shot, give that a try.
"Netflix came to us and said, 'Hey, look, if you'd be interested...If there's even more footage, if you'd be interested in putting it together and in a way that we could show it as three or four episodes, depending on how much extra footage you have, we'd be willing to do that.
While he said he would be keen to see some of his other work go down this alley, don't expect Kill Bill to follow. Indie Wire adds that Tarantino used every second of footage shot in both volumes, meaning there's nothing left over for episodic versions.
But who knows, maybe we'll see Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction turned into series we can feast our eyes on.
Tarantino hasn't mentioned the speculation about a Once Upon A Time miniseries but clearly he's got the support of his cast to make it happen.
