A1, that will be interesting. I expect that if there is an official new release coming, it will include the missing scenes as supplements only, not re-integrated back into the movie. Last I heard, that was the philosophy the Leone family was operating under.

Well spotted!  Afro

I wonder though . . . the current widescreen DVD is already called a "Special Edition." Will this new release actually be something new, or just the current SE repackaged?

I wouldn't get my hopes up. A lot of the titles announced are clearly re-issues of current editions (Goodfellas, the Film Noir box sets, etc). I don't doubt that a new edition of OUATIA is coming, just that it may not arrive until after they first re-issue the old one.

This guy is dumb. He is saying a movie shot on 35mm 20 years ago cannot look as good as a movie shot on 35mm today.

It's like saying that someone making a drawing 20 years ago, cannot scan on digital as good as the same drawing drawn today. idiot.

No, I think he's totally right.

This guys is stupid. A 35mm frame is 4 to 8 times superior in resolution to 1080p video, HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT AND HIS ON DRUGS OR PAID OFF BY THE BLU RAY ALLIANCE TO SPEAK TRASH.
Even Leone movies, shot in poors man cinemascope, ARE TWO TIMES THE RESOLUTION OF 1080P VIDEO SO THEY SHOULD LOOK AS GOOD AS ANY OTHER MOVIE FROM RECENT YEARS IF THE JOB IS DONE RIGHT.

May be, but older films usually have unremovable scratches and marks...

No further news from Warner Bros but according to another source, work on the 25th Anniversary Edition started in September 2005.  This 314 minute final cut adds several scenes, how Noodles met Eve, the arrest of Bugsy, a black limousine and Noodles' family. Other important additions are the explanations of the frisbee scene and the garbage truck scene.  There is also an alternate ending to the movie.

Disc contents:

Final cut version of movie - running time 314 minutes
Commentaries: Sergio Leone (in Italian with subtitles in English),
James Woods, Robert De Niro, Arnon Milchan, Richard Schickel
Special "Behind The Scenes" featurette including
Casting and Locations
Deleted Scenes
Alternate Ending
Leone: Art of Direction
Soundtrack
Sergio Leone: Once Upon a Time
A look inside Harry Grey's The Hoods
Characters & Bios
You mean the "source" on IMDb? It's talked here: http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=3582.0 Unfortunately it's most probably a rumor, more specifically a hoax. I saw the original post on IMDb once (it's fallen over the edge long time ago), the poster claimed he had been to some event where Milchan announced this, that's why he couldn't provide any further evidents. I so hope this would be true, but probably isn't. But we will see next year.

PS. That blu-ray cover is just a wet dream, right?

The "Sergio Leone commentary" confirms that this just has to be a hoax.

Shame. Sad

I think it was supposed to be joined from interviews or something like that.

It's gotta be a hoax. The footage for those extra scenes exists, but it has been the desire of the Leone estate not to reintegrate them back into the whole. On some future release we should see the additional material, but as stand-alone extras.

If there was some existing footage of a Leone interview i'm sure we'd already know about it but such footage wouldn't work as part of a audio commentary track and would be better served as a separate special feature.

I've said this before: if this were true, I'm not sure how interested I'd be in buying it. Five+ hours is pushing it, even for me, particularly when the deleted scenes are of unknown quality.

I would think it unusual for a director or the family of a deceased director to have rights over parts of a movie he has worked on but we will probably find out a bit more in due course.
I only know what has been reported in this thread. See Derbent 5000's post on the first page.
