If you thought the Snyder Cut was long, think again: there is apparently a 20-hour cut of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood hiding somewhere.

Margot Robbie made the revelation in a new interview with Variety. She was originally asked whether there is a longer version of David Ayer’s 2016 Suicide Squad, in which she played Harley Quinn.

“For personal reasons, I’d love to watch the five-hour cut of every movie I’ve ever done,” the actor joked in response, before bringing up Tarantino’s film.

“There’s a 20-hour cut of Once Upon a Time in… Hollywood that would… there’s so much more that you didn’t get to see, that we shot that was amazing, and for a million reasons obviously, can’t make the cut,” Robbie added.

Returning to the topic of Suicide Squad, she said that to her knowledge, a longer cut is not currently in the works.
