Following the critical and commercial success of Heaven Can Wait (1978), actor and filmmaker Warren Beatty looked to the history books for his next project. Back in the 1960’s, Beatty came across the life and story of journalist John Reed and even wrote a preliminary script about a potential project; it would about twelve years before he would find a suitable writing collaborator as well as backing from Paramount Pictures – albeit reluctantly on the part of Gulf + Western head Charles Bluhdorn – to finally bring Reds to the screen. The studio has given the movie a brand new Blu-ray release in time for the film’s 40th anniversary.
