I'm not current on a 3-hour cut. Maybe I was aware of this at one time but the intel has slipped my overburdened gulliver.
I could confirm easily enough with a quick message to Hensleigh or Tom, and will endeavor to.
I've never hear TJ complain about stuff that was left out of the film so I'm not sure the missing footage would be earth-shattering or not.
Let me see what I can discover.
The 2004 film has a solid following so maybe, just maybe one day Hensleigh will get his director's day in court with a definitive director's cut.
He was involved and approved the EXTENDED cut but there still exists no DIRECTOR'S cut on the market.
If nothing's going to happen with the character for a while on film then maybe we'll see a BluRay director's cut in the future.
