'The Game' (Fincher) Criterion edition.

Has anyone heard anything to suggest a special edition of this may be on the cards.
I ask as the special edt of Trainspotting recently released here, contains features from the Criterion edition laserdisc (the commentary) and the DVD is a Polygram/Universal release, as is the current version of 'The Game'.

The criterion laserdisc of The Game is a superb edition, which I never got to get, and still commands a high price, as can be seen here Ł46 at the time of posting.

Screen-specific audio commentary by David Fincher, Michael Douglas and others

It’s not going to happen. It was just a rumour.

Some David Fincher fan site posted full specs and a street date, supposedly direct from Criterion. Turns out they were just having a laugh.

It will probably make it out at some point in the future, but it may turn out to be a looooooong wait.

Annoying because The Game is a fantastic movie and I really want to hear Fincher's commentary

David Fincher said in an interview last year, there would be no Criterion version out. Can't remember why not.

damn shame, but at least with the trainspotting release it shows there is hope of criterion releasing the laserdisc extras at some point. it really is a film that needs a better release.
