“Once Upon a Time in…Hollywood” is still in theaters, but star Brad Pitt says a mini-series may be on the horizon.
After an intimate profile with Pitt appeared in the New York Times this week — revealing the movie star’s thoughts on fame and his struggles with alcoholism –“Times” writer Kyle Buchanan published some unreleased details from the profile, including Pitt’s confirmation that Quentin Tarantino discussed a streaming version of “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” that would expand the film into several episodes with more footage. “Yeah he’s talked about it,” Pitt said. “It’s a pretty arousing idea.”
Pitt also explained why he thinks an episodic version of Tarantino’s fantastical Manson murder story may find more success in today’s streaming era. “I’m curious to see if movies last, if movies stick around,” Pitt said. “What I notice about the younger generation is that they’re used to receiving a lot of information at a much faster pace, and they’re more inclined to watch a short series of episodes where you can stay in it as long as you want or jump out whenever you get bored.”
