Quentin Tarantino's latest film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is still playing in theatres worldwide. And while fans of the director have to wait years for him to come out with a new film, it seems like this time around there might be more that Tarantino has to offer. In a very personal interview with Brad Pitt that appeared in The New York Times this week, the actor touched up on his struggle with alcoholism as well as a mini-series that will tell the story of all the characters from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in much more detail.
Citing Tarantino's 2015 film, The Hateful Eight, Pitt said that the director chose to debut a four part mini-series of the same earlier this year on Netflix. He said, " It’s almost the best of both worlds. You have the cinema experience that exists, but you can actually put more content in a series format." He then confirmed that Tarantino has also discussed a streaming version of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood that will consist of a few episodes with extra footage. Pitt continued, "He’s talked about it. It’s a pretty arousing idea."
The actor also explained that a mini-series version of Tarantino’s latest murder story will find more success in today’s streaming era, where people are constantly on the lookout for this kind of genre. Pitt concluded, “I’m curious to see if movies last and if they stick around. The younger generation is used to receiving a lot of information at a much faster pace, and they’re more inclined to watch a short series of episodes where you can stay in it as long as you want or jump out whenever you get bored.” Much like the film, the mini-series version of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will also feature Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie.
