@MovieUnchained Today is the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction being released, and the great Quentin Tarantino dropped a glorious bombshell on all of us superfans - he is intending to bring his film Django Unchained to cable in the form of a miniseries. Tarantino, who won an Academy Award for scripting the western last year, says he intends to use the 90 minutes of cut footage from the film and turn it into a miniseries, which he will put into four parts, which he intends to air on cable at some point. Tarantino claims that releasing the extra footage as a director's cut would be "an endurance test" for audiences, and that miniseries are being broadly embraced by people all around the world, saying ”People roll their eyes at a four-hour movie. But a four-hour miniseries that they like, then they are dying to watch all four parts. That's how I thought it could work.” Tarantino is currently in France at the Cannes Film Festival, where he and Uma Thurman (who played the iconic Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction) are holding a special screening of Pulp Fiction to celebrate exactly twenty years since the film was first seen at Cannes, where it won the prestigious Palme D'Or and has gone on to be considered one of the greatest films of all time. It is obviously unknown now if this project will even go forward, but with an artist with as much talent and built-in fanbase such as Quentin Tarantino, any executive will be out of their mind to reject this promising idea from a true auteur and creative genius.
