The Wolf of Wall Street gets Extended Cut - UPDATE

One More Hour of Sex and Curse Words

We reported earlier that the initial version of The Wolf of Wall Street had a duration of 4 hours and had to be shortened for the theatrical release to 179 minutes. This version had to be cut further in order to meet the MPAA's requirements. They initially wanted to slap the film with the infamous NC-17 rating but made some censorship demands for the "R" classification which were met by the studio. It remained highly improbable that the DVD and Blu-ray would solve this problematic situation later on, especially since director Martin Scorsese spoke out against a Director's Cut.

However, the producers Joey McFarland and Riza Aziz have now hinted that the home video releases will contain a longer version. The Extended Cut is supposed to be an hour longer and will likely resemble the original 4-hour version. Apart from more curse words (even though the theatrical version already had 506 F-bombs), the sex scenes will be slightly expanded, as well. The producers said though that the theatrical cut already got the most extreme things.

It's going to be interesting what this longer version will bring to the table. US release is likely to happen in March/April 2014.

 

UPDATE  3:00 PM: It seems as if there's no agreement among the different people responsible for this situation. So while the producers announce such a Director's Cut, their company denies it after an inquiry by RopeofSilicon. It seems to be the best strategy to just wait for the technical specs announcement for the home video releases in order to finally know what will really be the case. Patience is key.
