"Monty Cristo" here once again.
I had the pleasure of talking with LOOPER director Rian Johnson on my podcast "Screen Time" yesterday afternoon (here's an iTunes subscription link if that's your thing), and he mentioned that the LOOPER Blu-ray will feature around 45 minutes of cut scenes.
He noted to me the other day that the cut in theaters is his final, perferred cut, and that we should not expect some sort of Extended Ultra-Mega-Super Cut.
The brief mention of the Deleted Scenes occurred in a spoiler-laden "After Dark" episode I'm posting later this weekend , but the above-linked main show is required listening, as he gets into what it was like producing this independent with a huge scale and big stars, as well as his big influences both for this film and across his entire career.
There's a pile of other stuff frontloaded in the episode, so if you want to skip to the interview with Johnson, it begins at about 24:30.
I look forward to you guys tearing me apart and saying how shitty my show is in the Talkbacks.
