Italian Job DVD release

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Michael Caine : One Thread

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew when/if the Italian Job was going to be released on DVD? I saw on www.play247.com a while ago that it was going to be released but it was then deleted by the studio.

I love this film to bits, and rate it as my best of all time. Any help would be gratefully received.

Alex.

PS. Any info on ZULU would be eagerly received also.

The remake - with Mark Wahlberg in the Charlie Croker role and the whole thing moved to LA - is currently under development. For more info, try Mark Wahlberg's official site at: http://www.markwahlberg.com/.

I founded the info about UK release DVD "The Italian Job" in Hi-Fi UK magazine. They used the DVD among a few more to check a quality a View/sound different DVD-players, TV plasma, etc. I cannot hardly wait for US (DVD zone 1) release that movie. The amazon.com (I ordered already)informed me "the DVD not released yet" and estimating day begin of January 2003???!!! I'll let you know, pals, when I receive the item.

I have also pre-ordered The Italian Job from Amazon.com and my husband and I can't wait to get it. I see there is no new release date yet. Wondering if they are waiting until The Italian Job 2003 movie they are working on now is holding this release date to promote the new movie ????????? Motor on Mini Power !!!
