Getaway [2013] Maybe With Special B-Version

Director Might Have an Idea for Unused Footage

The action thriller Getaway was edited out of 6100 single scenes by director Courtney Solomon for the theatrical release. Oftentimes, 25 to 42 cameras were used simultaneously to shoot action scenes and CGI was avoided where this was possible (not only for budgetary reasons). Stuntmen want to work for their money, too.

With that much material, the question is of course what happens to the scenes that are left on the cutting room floor? When Collider asks about that, the director gets excited:

Solomon: Oh my God. It will be the sexiest Blu-ray extras you’ve ever seen, for sure. An average movie has about twenty-odd hours of source footage … we have 630, so do the math. I actually wanted to do one version of the movie as a B-version that we’d put up just from the perspective of the guys watching cameras. No traditional RED cams, no traditional photography at all, just cutting between things. The story is still the same, but you end up with an entirely different movie. And I would really love the opportunity to cut that together and give people the opportunity to watch A and B. And one day I’d love to see this in 3D because that would be the most intense experience you could imagine. (via Collider)

So, if we interpret correctly what he says, that would mean that he'd like to produced an alternate version of the movie for the Blu-ray for which he only uses shots that show the actors looking at the camera. Surely a nice idea but maybe just a gimmick that you watch for a while before you switch back to the real film.

The normal version of Getaway starts in US cinemas on August 30th, 2013. The UK follows on October 4th, 2013.
