I’ve been working on a 1080p restoration of the original Robocop director’s cut using the video from the unreleased Sony blu-ray, and the 1080p HDTV rip synced to the retail blu-ray disc audio. I have the movie rendering to lossless video right now and, originally, I was considering just turning it into an m2ts file that could used to replace the one on the retail blu-ray disc.
After talking with Dark Jedi, he said that Team Blu had been considering this as a project and that I might be able to work with them to turn it into a full-fledged blu-ray disc, instead.
So, I’m going through the assets I have at my disposal to see what could be included. I have the material off of the Criterion DVD, including the audio commentary and original stereo mix. A bit accurate LPCM version of the stereo mix off of the Criterion LD would be nice if someone has it available.
I would also like to create an isolated score audio track since I have the soundtrack as well as the extra song by PTP that wasn’t included on the soundtrack CD.
The theatrical cut and maybe some HD trailers could also be included as bonus features, disc space permitting.
Is this project worth pursuing?
