Isn't the five hour Thin Red Line just fake news?

Isn't the whole mythology surrounding it really just based on fans not understanding what a rough cut is? Did Malick actually say that he would have liked to release a version that long? Lots of movies have a super long version made as part of the editing process but which was only every considered by the filmmakers as part of a work in progress. There was a ten hour version of Once Upon a Time In America, there was a three hour version of First Blood, ect.
