It was rumored a few months back that one of my favorite films of all time, DARK CITY, would be getting re-released with brand new special FX work added. No other details were revealed and it has been silent since then – until now. The other day I chatted with writer David Goyer, who is off in Chicago directing THE UNBORN for Rogue Pictures, who revealed a few more details on the project that any hardcore fan will appreciate. Read on for the skinny.
While on the set of his upcoming film UNBORN, writer-director David Goyer updated us on the re-release of DARK CITY, which he wrote for Alex Proyas to direct. “It’s coming out fairly soon [and will] probably have limited theatrical, but Im not sure,” he explains, “I have seen almost all of it and I took part in an over hour long making-of.”
In addition to the special features, Goyer reveals that there’s more to the re-release than just special FX upgrades. “[They re-did] the score and the cuts a little longer,” he reveals, “all of the parties involved did fairly lenghtly interviews with us, they’ll be incluced on there.”
He’s also quite sure that there will be a Blu-ray release. Join me in a lengthy scream of happiness. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
