Oliver Stone's Alexander Gets a 4th Cut
"You have fallen in love with all the things that destroy men."
No doubt, christmas came early this year. Oliver Stone revealed in an interview that he will work on a new version of his historical epic Alexander in 2013.
Alexander was a big flop at the box office and failed considerably to make back its production costs of 175 million Dollars. While especially the German investors had to suffer from that, Warner Bros. made big money with the US rights and generated revenue with the film on DVD and Blu-ray. It seems that the interest in the film hasn't deflated since and that must have prompted Warner and Stone to invest money and time once more to do another version of the film, increasing the total count to 4 after we already got the theatrical version, the Director's Cut and the Final Cut.
However, it's unlikely that we get new material in the 4th cut. Oliver Stone announed that it's going to be shorter than the Final Cut (215 mins) that basically contained all the shot material. The next version will most likely arrange things in a new way.
We would like to point out that we already have two comparions for Alexander in our archive and re-worked them (and the intro) substantially. Here, an analysis of the different versions is included and enriched with statements of Oliver Stone.
A release date for the new cut is not yet known but we'll surely report any developments.
