We all know the version of Zodiac
due out a week from Tuesday is Fincher's theatrical cut and will be a bare bones affair. We all also know it follows a pattern lately of Fincher DVD releases where an expanded edition comes afterwards. Few directors understand DVD like David Fincher and these special editions of his films really as just that, special. Davis DVD
brings us a first peek at the early specs for Zodiac
. Audio Commentary by David Fincher, actors Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey, Jr., screenwriter James Vanderbilt, producer Brad Fischer and crime novelist James Ellroy
* Extensive behind-the-scenes featurettes detailing the production from start to finish
* In-depth looks at the actual Zodiac crimes, including all-new interviews with the original investigators and survivors
We don't have any other details as of yet, but you can bet this is going to be one hell of a package. Stay tuned for more information on this release in the coming months.
It looks like we will see this sometime this January. I'm assuming that it won't be one big commentary but will instead follow Ficher's pattern of breaking up the related groups into different commentaries focusing on the specific areas of interest. I'm also hearing the directors cut will be 3 to 3 1/2 hours. It is worth noting, again through reading on several sites, that the bare bones edition will be the only one with the movie's theatrical cut. I know several people who have Zodiac
in the best-of list of movies released this year. I'm looking forward to it.
