    Nope, extended version is confirmed to be not happening. This is the one and only cut that will be released on DVD or Blu, though the lack of extras on this one make me think that a double-dip might be in the offing at some point. Regardless, the movie's too good for me to wait on, so I've already got mine pre-ordered.

    Loved this movie. I was really surprised that it was being sold on Amazon for
    just under $20. I figured this would be considerably more expensive.

    Would have liked to see an extended cut, but this film is about 3 hours long
    already, if memory serves me correctly.

    http://collider.com/the-wolf-of-wall-street-extended-cut-4-hours/

    Mind you in searching i did find this link too which says there won't be an extended edition.

    I guess i'll file this under not true, i would love some deleted scenes though since it seems a lot was cut out.

    How does the movie compare to the book it is based on?

    Most studios aren't going to kill sales by saying another version is coming for Christmas or whenever. They want mainstream America to pick up this release and then hit them with another. I've read that the extended version was coming but perhaps it will hit overseas first and then slowly make its way here. Either way, I'd say we'll eventually see it.

    It's not happening. Scorsese is on record saying that while there was a 4-hour cut originally, that was just an assembly edit, and won't see the light of day. Thelma pretty much backed it up by saying that once he finishes a movie, he never goes back. I think the best we can hope for is some deleted scenes at some point, but even then, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I'm going to avoid breaking forum rules but longer scenes are already out there. I personally haven't viewed them by from what I've heard they're out there. Scorsese and the editor won't be the final say on whether the studio or one of the producers decide to release something else. I know previous Scorsese films have been cut and not restored but we are talking about a hour here.

    Frankly speaking, an hour of extra footage really isn't a lot when considering that most assembly edits contain FAR more than that. And yes, the extra footage is out there, and we may see it someday in terms of deleted scenes. But the longer cut on disc won't happen. The film's already three hours in length and yes, Scorsese will and does absolutely have a say in the longer cut appearing. He's already onto other things (like Silence). Won't happen.

    Only time will tell. Unless you're Scorsese posting under a fake name your certainty isn't 100%. Not to mention the fact that a lot can happen after he passes (knock on wood). You said a hour isn't a lot of footage but we're not talking about a rough cut here. This was Scorsese's cut that had to be trimmed because of the budget, the MPAA and the simple fact that a 4-hour movie isn't going to work at a theater. Again, time will tell but I think this situation is a bit different than a few seconds being removed from CASINO or CAPE FEAR. Some of the sex/nudity had EYES WIDE SHUT type of covering which isn't a big deal or any part of the hour missing. I'm guessing that hour is more character development

    I think The Wolf of Wall Street is prime Scorsese and I will certainly pick up this release. On a longer cut...well...according to the people in control of the film there will be no extended version of the film BUT I wonder who leaked that there would be. Maybe just testing the waters to see if there was interest in a longer cut.

    I don't think the film requires a longer cut because I think it makes all its points in the 3 hour version and really hammers them home. I doubt additional scenes would include "character development" because in this film the characters don't really develop they just unravel and don't really change/grow during the film. So, additional running time would likely just extend existing scenes and perhaps involve a couple more episodes of over the top debauchery because the film has that episodic sort of structure. I believe the Lemmon quaalude episode was actually a lot longer and really I don't think there is much need to extend that.

    BUT my personal feeling is blu-ray is designed to accommodate providing these extended cuts for home viewing and they are a great selling point to entice people to buy the film. I mean if you provided a version of this film that has another hour I think that is huge to people that enjoy the film or are Scorsese fans. As long as the director's cut...which is the theatrical version in this case...is also included.

    I really don't think Scorsese likes the idea of having more than his cut of the film out there so it may never happen but because it can provide a financial windfall to provide an "extended version" I would not count out the possibility that it could happen.

    I'd love to see the eyeball coming out scene from Casino, it would make sense to put that scene back in since it was censorship that caused it's removal, i guess the footage was lost otherwise i see no reason why it has never made it back into the film.

    Scorsese has talked about the fact that the eyball and other stuff like that is put in so that they can cut it out so the MPAA feels that they've toned it down and he can keep the stuff he really cares about.

    I don't know, the way the "eye" scene is edited in the R-rated version of CASINO is rather sloppy, I have a hard time believing he always intended it to be that way.

    In a similar vein, does anyone know what was cut from The Wolf Of Wall Street to get an R? I assume it's one or more of the sex scenes but the shot of Jonah Hill masturbating when he sees Margot Robbie seemed a little choppy (though maybe that was an effort on the part of the filmmakers to not be super graphic).
