    A two-disc 'Directors Cut' of Barry Levinson's The Natural is coming from Sony April 3, according to the Sony website here - no other detail I'm afraid, but I rejoice at the news.

    Did this movie have different cuts when it was released or is this a newly assembled director's cut?

    If I'm going to double-dip, it had better include both cuts, or I'm perfectly happy with what I have.

    Did they ever film the book's ending? The film and the book have pretty much opposite endings.

    Seems like Barry Levinson is intent on reworking his Sony films. First Bugsy, now this. [​IMG]

    Sound like the original cut is non-existent.

    I'll take a pass, and maybe rent.
