Yesterday during the DVD’99 conference we had the chance to catch up with Artisan Entertainment’s Jeff Fink where he was able to tell us a little about some of the company’s upcoming DVD titles.
Artisan will start adding DVD-ROM content to their releases and The Blair Witch Project will contain such DVD-ROM content as well as web links.
Fink revealed that there will be two separate versions of “The Blair Witch Project” on DVD. The first one will be a regular version of the film that is released in order to make sure the film hits retail on DVD day & date with the VHS version. A more time-consuming special edition with a director’s cut is planned for release hopefully before Christmas.
He was also able to tell us that the long awaited Stephen King TV-mini series The Stand is well on its way for an October 19 release. “DVD-18 is finally here!” he told us excited, although currently only one authoring and replication facility, WAMO, is currently able to fulfill such projects.
