Warner Bros. late 90s P&S discs -- any news?

I would love to buy the following: The Great Santini With Honors Lean on Me Running on Empty Since HTF has a good relationship with WB, I'm wondering if there has been any news lately. Due to a personal crisis, I've been away from the HTF/Internet most of this year and I've been immersing myself in DVDs. I'm tempted to buy the P&S versions as I've waited years for widescreen and well, you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Let's not forget two of my favorites: DEATHTRAP THE WITCHES (Though at one of the chats, the Warners reps said they had no plans to revisit THE WITCHES.)

I confess I gave in on Running on Empty, The Witches, and With Honors. I'd love to be able to upgrade them to nice anamorphic widescreen versions.

I wouldn't mind a WS version of Guilty By Suspicion. I've used it in some classes when discussing the McCarthy era, so I bought the pan and scan version. It is my only pan and scan among nearly 300 titles on DVD.

I'd love a nice wide screen DVD of HOOPER, which I think was an early days p/s from Warner.

Whatever happened to the Grumpy Old Men movies being remastered in widescreen? I distinctly remember Warner saying that a special edition set containing both films (a la 'Ace Ventura') was in the works. That was quite a long time ago. Watched the first one on TV a couple of weeks ago and forgot how truly great and funny it is. I'm still waiting with baited breath, and refuse to buy the P&S versions. EDIT: By the way, I second a WS version of "Stand By Me". Excellent movie.

Are you sure you don't mean "Running on Empty"

They still haven't given us a widescreen The Man With Two Brains.

Wasn't Polanski's Frantic with Harrison Ford another one of them ? -D

And put me down for Spies Like Us. In fact, I swear WB said they were considering some kind of remastered Chevy Chase boxset (similar to the Universal sets featuring Tom Hanks, John Candy, etc.). (A few minutes later) Ah, I was right: "We also hope to do a Chevy Chase set in widescreen. The value-based releases you've seen at mass merchants are not what we were referring to in previous chats. The ACE VENTURA COLLECTION is an example of what we plan to do for Chevy and the Grumpys. "

And, please, let's not forget FEARLESS. Please. Warner, I'm looking at you. Hey, don't turn away from me!

Lean On Me has an HD master of some kind, I have seen it a couple of times on TV, either on A&E or CityHD. And what about True Stories?
