    this film has a huge cult status and is (as i confirmed by dusting off my laser) great fun.

    with a s.e. of softly's "backbeat" he may be up for a commentary.

    Hopefully sony will milk mgm's movies like it does cthv
    any one heard anything about plans or rumors

    And now burton has done his "batman" extras and commentary will he be doing all of his early movies after wonka?

    Burton isn't making Wonka, he's making Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the title of the book by Roald Dahl. It's NOT a remake, as some say. (Just thought I'd clear that up.)

    And yes, the only reason that's preventing me from purchasing both Beetlejuice and Hackers is a) The DVD's are very 'old' per the age of the format and considered ancient, b) no resounding extras and poor transfers per today's standards, c) gut feeling that Beetlejuice is most likely going to receive the Two-Disc Special Edition treatment from Warners, d) the only reason which is preventing me from purchasing Hackers is because it isn't anamorphic and very little to no extras, e) all of the above.

    So, there you have it.

    Actually, a remake is a remake, regardless of the circumscances. Mel Stuart made it. Tim Burton is making it again. Hence, "remake".

    Ray_R,
    The current Hackers DVD is anamorphic, and it comes with a booklet (that could be considered an extra).
    I don't think that they will revisit this.

    Still waiting for the Beetlejuice SE though.
