William Friedkin’s SORCERER to be Re-released! (Finally)

The torturous road travelled by William Friedkin’s 1977 remake of Henri-Georges Clouzot’s classic Wages of Fear is both obscure and legendary. The film bombed hard upon its original release, and it was a very expensive picture. Since then ownership and rights issues have been snarled in a lot of legal confusion, while a proper aspect ratio version of the film has never been issued in any format. The only way to see this film properly is if you knew someone with a 35mm print. After Friedkin threatened to sue EVERYBODY associated with his film a short while ago, it seems that the powers that be are mounting a re-release (and BluRay) in short order after at 35 year wait.

It’s all outlined in detail, here.
