Bourne Legacy - Don't expect a longer cut later on

Scribe and director Tony Gilroy doesn't like them

Tony Gilroy wrote all the scripts for the Bourne series and directed the 4th entry The Bourne Legacy himself. Recently, he sat down with Collider and told them that he's not a big fan of prolonging films later on. Regarding the question if there were any deleted scenes that he might put back into the film for a later Director's Cut on DVD/Blu-ray, he answered:

I won’t put them in the cut.  It’s actually really interesting, there are three deleted scenes—we just mixed them and color corrected them—and you probably know a lot more about this than I do, but what I like about it is all three scenes happen in the movie.  One of them’s referred to and they’re completely legitimate parts of our story, they absolutely happen in our film, we just didn’t have time to show them to you so there’s nothing off to the side.  I think they’ll be on the straight-up DVD.  I won’t go back and put them in the cut, I’m not a big fan of that.  I think it doesn’t work as often as it works; I can name a couple pictures where the director’s cut just doesn’t match what the studio cut was.

This is in line with the other films of the franchise. Until now, no film has been prolonged after its theatrical release, even though there were brief announcements for an extended edition of The Bourne Conspiracy, which did not see the light of day, eventually.

People who did not plan to see it in cinemas because they were uncertain that there might be a longer cut later on, can now rethink their plans. The Bourne Legacy is currently playing in theaters.
