3 Days to Kill - McG Announces Director's Cut

Kevin Costner Thriller Longer in Home Video?

Liam Neeson played the role model. Even when the age of 50 has been passed and a solid resume with serious roles shows artistic qualities, a trip into the world of rather shallow action films can be successfully undertaken. Since Taken, Neeson is sought after for physical roles once again (most recently in Non-Stop).

Kevin Costner, who was relatively absent from the leading man limelight in recent years (except for Mr. Brooks), now tries to improve his image with 3 Days to Kill. Written and produced by Luc Besson, it starts in the US these days and other markets are soon to follow. For a moderate budget of $28 million and equipped with a PG-13 rating, the film should manage to make back its investment and then some.

But Luc Besson and the PG-13 rating are two opposites that don't go well together. Censorship has been an issue in several of his productions (Taken 1+2, Colombiana, Lockout, and others being among them). Even though director McG doesn't mention anything in that direction during the interview with Collider, he does talk about another reason why fans should get their hopes up that some longer version might come their way on home video:

Yeah, I think there will be some. We shot that one scene in the Crazy Horse, which is a very famous cabaret that’s visited by women as much as men. It’s not vulgar, at all. It’s beautiful. It’s like Cirque du Soleil. So, I tested the movie with a longer version of these women doing what I thought was this very, very beautiful dance, and American women were not really into it. I was saddened because I wasn’t like, “Ooh, look at the nudity.” I just thought it was beautiful. It was like looking at a painting. These women are from the Bolshoi. So, the director’s cut will be more involved, and it will speak to this ethereal, otherworldly quality of the Vivi character. She’s just not on the same planet. She’s almost an extension of Ethan’s consciousness, and a temptation. I wanted the audience to guess if she was even real. That’s why she very rarely interacts with anyone other than Ethan, in the spirit of that Bruce Willis, The Sixth Sense thing. So, I can’t wait to show the longer version.

That still leaves room for non-PG-13 violence and nudity so it might be better to rule nothing out just yet.
