As the film hits at the box office, Ridley Scott confirms he wants to release an extended edition of House Of Gucci.

For those who like to watch ‘adult’ (steady) dramas at the cinema, the weekend box office finally offered some good news. The week before, the acclaimed King Richard had done a commercial belly flop, but this week in the US, Ridley Scott’s House Of Gucci has done good business. It’s the first film of its ilk to do so in cinemas for a couple of years, with $21.8m in the bank already.

The film is notable for a few things. It’s 157 running time for one, the performance of Lady Gaga for another. Then there’s Jared Leto, and let us charitably suggest he is not an asset to the movie. That notwithstanding, as he heads off to make his next film Kitbag next month, Scott has a hit on his hands.

And he’s already confirmed to ReelBlend that he’s looking to make House Of Gucci longer. That there’s a longer cut of the film that he’ll exploring putting out on home formats. “I’m not going to say it needs to be four hours or more”, he said. But he added that “things do play better at home because you can pause it, get a beer, and come back”.

As such, there will be an extended version, confirming “it won’t be a director’s cut, it will be a long cut”.

It sounds just the kind of thing that milleniuns can look forward to enjoying on their cellphones in due course (nope, will never tire of that). House Of Gucci is, in the meantime, currently playing in UK cinemas.
