Third Person With Possible Extended Cut Later On

Paul Haggis Hopes to Prolong his Drama on Blu-ray

Third Person is the new drama of Oscar winning director Paul Haggis (Crash) starring Liam Neeson and Olivia Wilde. Initially, it was 3 hours long and was shortened for the theatrical release to a runtime of 2h17min. Haggis said in a recent interview with Collider that this didn't mean that he had to cut entire plot parts out but rather shortened existing scenes. Still, he hopes to put out an Extended Cut of his film that connects the stories of three couples in different cities with each other.

However, this prolonged cut will probably only see the light of day when the investors give the green light. That also means that the film has to make enough money at the box office. Either way, don't count on getting the Extended Cut with the first batch of home video releases but rather some time in the future.

Collider: If you had to edit that much out, were there any storylines you had to lose?

HAGGIS:  No, but there was a lot of stuff from those stories that I had to cut out, and I had to find ways to balance them.  It was stuff I just loved.  I hope someday to be able to make an extended version.

Collider: Is that something you’d like to do for the DVD?

HAGGIS:  Yeah, but probably not for the first DVD.  I would love to do it.  It depends on what the financiers will allow me to do.  It depends on how successful the movie is.  If it’s not successful, you don’t do shit.
