I saw that MGM have released a 2-disc Special Edition of The Great Escape in Region 2. I haven't seen any news of this being released in Region 1. Does anyone have any information on when a R1 release can be expected?

Typically the MGM SEs in R1 are about 6 months behind R2. It's been that way with Robocop, Terminator, and several other titles.

Not always, Jeff. Usual Suspects was out both sides at the same time.
The other titles were down to U.S. rights issues, weren't they?
It's possible the R1 will be worth waiting for as for all we know the current SE has only been rushed out to cash in on the football (and I'm not talking about 'strapping on 10 lbs of body armour to play a game of rugby' here :D )!!!
