Paramount puts Wonderboys back on the schedules

After having been announced for release late last year, the Oscar-buzz surrounding the Curtis Hanson’s film Wonder Boys let to delays of the DVD. Now that the film has been nominated for four Golden Globes and won one for Golden Globe for Best Original Song, Paramount Home Video is putting this Michael Douglas starrer finally back on the schedules. The DVD is now scheduled for release on March 13.

Directed by Hanson (L.A. Confidential), this is the story of an author (Michael Douglas) of a wildly successful novel who is trying to write another but is struggling with the success of his past and the weight of his future. The movie also stars Tobey Maguire and Frances McDormand.
Paramount will present the movie in an enhanced widescreen transfer letterboxed at 2.35:1, with Dolby Digital 5.1 and French Surround tracks, as well as English subtitles. Bonus features will include exclusive interviews with Douglas, Maguire, Frances McDormand and director Curtis Hanson. Also—similar to what was done with “L.A. Confidential”—an interactive map showing the Pittsburgh locations used for shooting will include commentary by Hanson. Also included will be a featurette on the singers and songwriters featured in the movie, a soundtrack pictorial, the music video for Bob Dylan’s “Things Have Changed” and a featurette on Dylan.

This ‘Wonder Boys’ Special Edition will carry a suggested retail price of $29.99.
