Just thought I'd point out this article I read this morning over at www.aint-it-cool-news.com "Let me say that the upcoming Evil Dead special edtion will blow your socks off. Also a 4 disc box set featuring all three films and a 4th special features disc will be out around the same time next year as the Evil Dead dvd. Coming out very soon are Brand new transfers of Heathers,Halloween (we tried so hard to pick up the rights from goodtimes for part 2 and 3.but Universal wanted to do there own so called Special Editions.Our plan was to make a Halloween 1-6.We were trying to get the producers cut rights to h6..Which still might happen).Both Hellrasier 1 and 2 are also getting a Special Edition make over...Bad Taste has a Great limited 2 disc set coming out...Ok but here are the real news makers. I pretty much have 3 big stories for you. First off.. As you may or may not know Anchor bay and Disney have worked togther in the past. With films disney did'nt plan or want to release or Re-release on dvd.(Return to Oz,Black hole to name a few)..Well I don't know if any one remembers the Flop Judge Dredd?...Yeah Thats the film that was taken away from the director because Stallon was a cry baby!..Danny Cannon Has decided if he could sit down and do his own cut of the film it might be ALOT better..Is this possible?..Anchor Bay will work with disney's Hollywood pictures (whats left of it) to produce Danny Cannon's cut of Judge Dredd..This is a very possible Early 2003 DVD. The Second Big deal is something that will be of more intrest to some..John Carpenter has stated he realy wants to do a DVD version of The directors cut to Escape from New York..MgM's DvD rights runs out in around 8 months..Mr. Carpenter really wanted to produce a nice box set with both New york and L.A...But Mgm does'nt want to renew the contract..And Paramont really does'nt want to Re-release l.a.or buy the rights to N.Y...So Anchor Bay have stepped in..They are currently talking to the right holders of both films and possible extra features. An escape directors collectors set?..That would be cool.If everything goes well this is another early 2003 release. Here is what I feel is the BIG NEWS..Basicly Anchor Bay has been keeping this one HUSH HUSH . Film freaks and Fan boys I give you Brand new cleaned up transfers of classic films Anchor Bay Calls.. THE ORSON WELLES COLLECTION The Stranger (1946) Mr. Arkadin (1955) The Trial (1963) Chimes at Midnight (1965) The Deep (1970) Orson welles (2002) Thats right..Great Special Editions of some classic Welles films that up until this set is released have had Shitty or no Dvd Versions.You'll also notice that THE DEEP is in there.Well as you know this was Welles version of DEAD CALM (later remade with billy zane and sam neil).This film was never finished and the lead actor died by the time Welles got around to finishing it. In 1997 it was rumored that there was enough footage to put the film togther..Well A private restoration group has been working on this since 1999 and finally this film will get a release next fall. Also a brand new Welles Documentary film produced by Anchor Bay will join this Collectors set.. Each film will Have extra features...Some larger than Others..But I must say the New transfer of The Trial is amazing. Next to Citizane Kane,The trial and The Stranger are my favorite welles films it's great to see these with quality DVD versions." Sounds like Anchor Bay has some interesting things on the horizon. Why didn't they mention much of this in the last chat?
