After the gorgeous transfers of NORTH BY NORTHWEST, GONE WITH THE WIND and THE WIZARD OF OZ, here's hoping Warner tackles this David Lean epic with the same care.

Rumor has it that ZHIVAGO is in the works, with a boxed set to rival those of GWTW an TWoO, and that the limited edition box could contain:

A music box that plays Lara's Theme
A Can of Caviar
A Copy of Zhivago in Russian
A reproduction of the 1965 Russian Program
A reproduction of Zhivago's Poetry
A reproduction of the original lobby cards

Retails: 79.99

Any truths to the rumor?

We are just surrealist pilgrims, melting clocks in marble halls. . .

It would appear that it is true.
Checkout the DigiBook Artwork in the earlier Zhivago blu-ray thread started by GregM.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932
