“The Wolf of Wall Street” will still be the longest film of the holiday season, just shy of three hours, even after trimming a few steamy scenes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio flick had to cut out drug and sex scenes in order to get an R-rating from the MPAA.
It’s no secret Scorsese’s next movie — following the downward spiral of stockbroker Jordan Belfort — has had to return to the edit bay.
Originally, the film was set to be released mid-November before getting pushed back.
At two hours and 59 minutes, “The Wolf of Wall Street” will be Scorsese’s longest movie yet.
