    Wow...i hadn't read the until you posted it.
    ANyone have any ideas about what she's referring to? I haven't heard ANYTHING new.
    I know Harrison doesn't like the movie and NEVER has. The only publicity he did for the movie came around that time and since he has rarely spoken about it. I respect that and you don't necessarily need his insight if he really didn't like the shoot. The only thing you're going to get is his point of view which was OBVIOUSLY not as interesting as one might thing and may be a bit more personal than technical. Not that I'm criticizing him for his opinion. On the contrary, I own every single movie he's ever made...but when you have a bad experience making a film or whatever (from personal experience), you just don't want to relive that. That's ALL that he would have to contribute...his bad experience. I'm sure it would just make him come off as a grouch and then everyone would criticize him for being bitter. So what's the point, really??? He has nothing to gain. Do it without him.
    As for the others...that's...that. I guess. I wouldn't doubt Sean Young wanting some more money...[​IMG] But again...i have no idea WHAT is going on.

    Some better news found over at BRmovie.com is that the special effect "fixes" have been put out to bid. (Companies can vie for the honor of removing wires, etc).
    So this means the work on the film itself is going on.

    I think I have permission to quote this excerpt, the guy is a regular on alt.fan.blade-runner. But do please visit his site sometime, lots of great coverage there (he's really giving bladezone.com a run for its chinyen!):

    Mr Scott's "Idiot" version can wait as long as need be, I just want the original theatrical version on DVD. It was to be included on the new release, making it a hug box set of all 3 versions of the films. I wonder if the theatrical cut could be released on it's own, or if that's "tied up" as well.

    The disc will come out, sometimes there are difficulties, especially on the big SEs. There may be some pissed off investor or something

    Ho hummm... the DVD release of Metropolis this
    week got me all eager to revisit Blade Runner.
    In my film class, we even talked about
    Blade Runner in relation to
    Metropolis just the other night.
    Man, oh man, (or should I say, "replicant, oh replicant?")
    where is the SE of this film on DVD?
    Any new news from anyone in the know?
    Mark

    Pick up the DVD of "Armitage III" (a Japanese anime) for your Bladerunner fix. Plays exactly like a sequel. There's two versions on the market; look for the one that says "episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4" in the upper right corner under the barcode on the backcover.

    I envision a scenario wherein Zinema was asked not to say anything on the net for fear of upsetting the legal process.

    I'm quite upset, I sold my old copy when I heard the new DVD was coming out... got a good price for it, too. Now I'll have to wait longer. As long as they include both the theatrical and extended versions, I'll be a happy little human who dreams of unicorns.

    I can't seem to understand why some persons rush to sell their LDs the second there is a rumor about the release of that film on DVD. That is taking a risk, if something happens that delays or cancels the DVD.

    I am optimistic that we'll see Warner's "Two/Three-Disc Special Edition" of Blade Runner in time for Christmas of this year. [​IMG]
