I've heard rumors of a "Goodfellas" Special Edition DVD coming out eventually. Anyone know anything about it? I'm tempted to buy the regular DVD :?

Rumor has had the Goodfellas SE coming out in spring for 3 years. Im betting if anything, a summer release with Casino, kind of like Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, thats just what I think. Mac will get up on this

I doubt that both Casino and Goodfellas will be released at the same time. Two different studios. Maybe (just maybe) they're waiting for Gangs to be released on DVD so people see Gangs and Goodfellas and say, hey, 2 Scorsese movies. I just want a special edition. I don't want to buy the flip disc version.

I reported that a Goodfellas special edition dvd is scheduled for release in the fall, namely around october and september, in Britain. So I imagine it wouldn't be that far different for here either. I knew of this and picked up the cheap one anyways because i couldn't wait that long and it was only a $20 dvd.

Yeah, the flip disc one sucks. It has absolutely nothing on it.  :cry:

I haven't even heard anything of a Casino SE. Has this been confirmed?

Goodfellas. The idea that casino came out second and was in same sytle/story as goodfellas will always hinder the movie when looked at through history. And anyways, Goodfellas gets down to the more honesty of just being in the mob. Casino shows it but plays itself out to be a traditional rise and fall of a man too, even if sharing a lot of similiar things with Goodfellas. The feeling of what it was like to be in the mafia and how goodfellas showed it will never be surpassed by Casino.

Couldn't find set specs, but the rumor mill lists the GoodFellas SE to be released sometime in Nov.
