Rolling on Shabbaz:
-TBL HD DVD release delayed:
Universal Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed a street date shift for its HD DVD debut of ‘The Big Lebowski,’ which had been planned for next Tuesday, but will now street June 26.
Specs for the title remain the same as originally announced, as does the disc’s suggested $29.98 list price.
Yesterday, Working Title announced at a press lunch that they had re-established their connection with the Coen brothers, severed after The Big Lebowski, which had seen the producers of Britain’s lamest comedies get involved with a string of America’s most perfectly honed films: Fargo, The Hudsucker Proxy and Lebowski itself. After the Coens’ five-film sojourn in the land of the boutique studio outfit, they are back at WT, who proudly outlined the next Coen project: a spy thriller called Burn After Reading, complete with a hefty cast, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich and Frances McDormand.
That’s my homework, Walter!
