Paramount - How about a Special Edition of Clue?

Since you're in the early stages of re-visiting bare-bones comedies like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, what are the chances of seeing a re-vamped Special Edition disc of Clue (with audio commentary by the director, cast, behind the scenes footage, deleted scenes, outtakes, interviews with the cast and crew, some kind of tribute to Madeline Kahn, a history and photo gallery of the board game, and possibly information on the mansion that the film took place at)? I like that the current disc gives us all three endings, but that's what my original VHS copy has too.
Have some fun with a Special Edition of this. Maybe include a brief featurette on the original showings of the movie (from what I've heard, a different ending was show in different theaters around the nation). In the featurette, explain how all that came about and how it was done. It would be very interesting!
This is one of my all-time favorite comedies, and I (like many) can watch it at the drop of a hat. I hope we can see a Special Edition released someday.
Come on, Paramount. It has a sizable cult following. Re-visit Clue someday! Any chance of it?

I'm with Wes on this one. Special Edition, please.
Fave scene: Jane Wiedlin (of the Go-Gos) as a singing telegram girl.
Sincerely,
John Kilduff

Well, at least that's an answer of some type. Thanks, Mr. Blythe. Please let me know if this changes.

Oh well, I guess we could always let this thread mutate into a Clue Favorite Line thread!

The one that kills me everytime...
Colonel Mustard...
"Wadsworth am I right in thinking theirs no one else in this house?"
Wadsworth...
"mm No."
Mustard...
"So their IS someone else in this house?"
Wadsworth...
"No, i'm sorry I meant no meaning yes."
Mustard...
"No meaning YES!? Is their someone else in this house yes or no?"
Wadsworth...
"No."
Mustard...
"No their IS, or no their ISN'T!?"
Wadsworth...
"Yes."
Mustard...
"Well their's still some confusion whether or not their's anyone else in this house!"
Wadsworth...
"I told you their isn't!"
Mustard...
"Their isn't any confusion, or their isn't anyone else in this house!?"
Wadsworth...
"Both! Or neither!"
Mustard...
"Just answer the question!!"
Wadsworth...
"Certainly! What was the question?"

I love this movie! I guess we'll just have to settle for the one currently available, thanks Martin for that rather blunt, but swift reply.

At least he's succinct, rather than saying he'd look into it and never replying as others might do.

I love Madeline Kahn.

"Yes. I did it. I hated her so...much...it, it, it...flames...on the side of my face...heaving...breaths...heaving breaths..."
Then of course, the classic line at the end of the movie...
Spoiler:
MR. GREEN: "They all did it. But if you want to know who killed Mr. Boddy, I did. In the Hall. With the revolver."
FBI AGENT: "Well done."
MR. GREEN: "Now I'm going to go home and sleep with my wife."

I nearly choked with laughter when I read Mr. Blythe's response.
What a guy! More companies need people like you!
Now, can we have Saturday Night Fever by Easter?

(Seriously, can we?)

"Husbands should be like Kleenex. Soft, Strong and Disposible."
Wadsworth:
"Mr. Boody! He's dead again! Why would anyone want to kill him twice?"
Col. Mustard:
"That's what we call overkill."
Col. Mustard:
"What are you afraid of? A fate worse than death?"
Mrs. Peacock:
"No, just death, isn't that enough?"

I'm happy that my Clue thread could be used for at least some good DVD news. I've never seen Saturday Night Fever but I've always been intrigued by it. I may just pick it up.
hehe. You know Mr. Blythe, you could always use this Clue thread to drop secret hints about what all is coming soon from Paramount from time to time. Just a thought.

Hmmm, is Mr. Blythe playing a cruel joke on those of us stuck in the 70s, or is he making an announcement?
I'm gonna assume the latter cause that's what I want to believe.

I wonder if Mr. Epstein has spotted this thread yet?

Note that over in the cross-posted thread about Sat. Nite Fever (in the Software section), Martin also stepped up to let us know that the sequel, Staying Alive, is also coming as well.
