Ali - Michael Mann Has Another Version Ready

Biopic Exists as a Third Cut - The Best Yet?

Michael Mann is notorious for producing multiple versions of several of his films. Extensions, removals, small adjustments, the variety in Mann's editing desires is huge (see the discrepancy in our comparisons for The Last Mohican or Heat)

His biopic Ali starring Will Smith already has a Director's Cut next to the theatrical version that runs almost 15 minutes longer than in cinemas. But it seems that his perfectionism got the better of him again as he reveals in an interview with Collider where he talks about a 3rd version that he did:

MANN: I did a re-edit of Ali for television that I really liked and I’d like to put out a Blu-ray of that edit.  That was a significant re-edit.  

Collider: Is it a lot longer? 

MANN: It happens to move better and it’s longer.  

Collider: Do you remember what the running time is versus the original? 

MANN: I don’t but it’s a little bit longer.  It’s more complete and moves better.  Much more dramatic.

Ali didn't yet get a Blu-ray release with the Director's Cut so it might be quite possible that the film then has this new, third version on board like it was the case with The Last Mohican. Time will tell.
