    I was going through my wish list at rentmydvd.com and they have the Return of the living dead listed for release on 02/29/2002. Here is the link: Return of the living dead release date.
    Can anyone confirm this? I've heard rumors that MGM would release this, but can only confirm a date from this site. Just your thoughts if any. Thanks.

    Its about time. Its one of my favorites too. The year it was released, I won a storyboard one sheet signed by the artist William Stout from Fangoria magazine.

    According to your post, ROTLD would be released on Leap Year of 2002. Unfortunately, there is no Leap Year in 2002. Somehow I guess that info isn't very reliable. Just my 2 cents.

    The link states the date as 2/19/02, not 2/29. So they just got early word of it. I'm sure it will start to pop up on the other sites in time.

    MGM *is* releasing this next year but a Feb release date? Sorry, don't buy it. MGM (as of a month or so ago) didn't even know what materials they had (for the possibility of a special edition) or what kind of shape they were in.
    So either this date is BS (likely) or MGM will release a bare bones disc first and then a special edition in August. August is the month I had heard for the DVD's release.
    I hope to speak with Dan O'Bannon soon...

    Sorry about the wrong date in my post. I hope they are wrong if there is a special edition planned in August. Who knows, maybe this is a special edition. Either way I can't wait for this to come out.
