id love francis to ditch the epic for now. Most people in the industry judge coppola based on Jack and Supernova. Let's admit, his most recent endeavors are from the good ole' days of coppola. As we've seen, he's having a very hard time finding money for such an ambitious endeavor.. In the mean time, while looking for money, I'd love to see him do a small character peice like the conversation - get back to the basics. He could easily fund a smaller film himself.

you give him good actors, a good photographer, a good script, and A LOT OF FOOTAGE (ie, let him shoot a HUGE amount of material to cut from), pressure, and Walter Murch, you'll get a masterpeice.

Remove any one element, you're basically screwed.

I have a feeling we'll see Jeepers Creepers 3 before such a film from FFC himself.

It's funny, he mentioned those movies.  He said he's doing everything he can to raise the money for Megalopolis.  His website, his wine... As he said, we're making these hollywood commercial thrillers for teens, the Jeepers Creepers movies, which are making us a lot of money to put into Megalopolis, in the old American Zoetrope model.

Warner has also announced The Outsiders: The Complete Novel - Special Edition for 9/20 (SRP $26.99). The 2-disc set will include a new longer version of the film in anamorphic widescreen (with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio), featuring footage newly-restored by director Francis Ford Coppola himself. Some 22 minutes of footage has been added, including a new beginning and ending "more true to the book." Extras are expected to include 10 minutes of additional deleted scenes (available separately), a new introduction and audio commentary by Coppola, a new introduction and audio commentary by the actors (including Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe and Diane Lane), the Staying Gold and On Location with S.E. Hinton documentaries, 3 featurettes (The Outsiders on Location, NBC Today Show: Fresno Book to Film and Hollywood Close-Up: The Premiere at Lonestar-Fresno), a look at the casting of the film with never-before-seen screen test and audition footage, and the film's 1983 and 2005 theatrical trailers.

I've had my little snapper dvd of the outsiders since as far back as I can remember, it was like 10 bucks. Suits me fine. The commentary may be interesting though.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

you're not interested in the new beginning/ending and 22 minutes of footage put back into the film?
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

No, does it have that? I hate that stuff. I like it fine the way it is.
