Director Baz Luhrmann recently told IndieWire that he will be putting together a four-hour cut of the film that will contain all of the concert footage Butler shot as Elvis during production.

Luhrmann said that Butler "did his concerts full out,” explaining, “he did all the numbers. Austin just did it and it was an out of body experience to watch him do those full concerts, so one day I will cut those full concerts together.”

Elvis has an official run time of two hours and 39 minutes.
