Epic Film? Can't Post

So, I'm extremely excited to hear the Guillermo is directing and that Ian and Andy are reprising their roles. But, what of the films themselves. The previous films were epic, in that they were all over 3 hours long and focussed on character development. Other films based on novels have been cut to under 2 hours, and most don't work. Eragon, for example was cut down. It lost the character development and truly lost the soul of the film.

So....My question is, can we expect 3 hour epics out of the upcoming films???
