Available on January 8, the DVD will be a two-disc set, with the director's cut of the movie (four minutes added to the theatrical release), a behind-the-scenes look at the film, in-depth case analysis and two commentary tracks. One is David Fincher alone.
The second commentary track is a bit more sprawling (participants include Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., producer Brad Fischer, screenwriter/producer James Vanderbilt and author James Ellroy; the actors were recorded together, while Vanderbilt, Fischer and Ellroy were recorded together) but just as fascinating, with the actors chatting amongst themselves while the trio dive quite deep into the source material, the project's genesis and theories about the killings. Taken together, it's an exceptional look behind the scenes of this compelling film
I can't wait to hear Jake and RDJ together, but I had hoped Jake and David Fincher would be in the same room and commenting together. I also really wanted to see this scene:
I had hoped for more Jake in the extras. And that made me wonder about the Rendition DVD, which is due out on February 19. I hope that Jake does commentary. Whom would you choose as Jake's commentary partner - Reese, Peter, Gavin Hood? All of the above?
It would be fun to listen to the Jake/Reese interplay, but only if they were relaxed. We don't want it to be like this!
The Observer listed the big hook-ups and break-ups for 2007:
Actors Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Philippe's divorce was finalised in court. Ryan Philippe later revealed that he felt 'suicidal', which may or may not have had anything to do with the fact that Reese Witherspoon quickly moved on with the help of Jake Gyllenhaal.
Finally, in case folks missed it in the comments, Jake was seen on set on Saturday. As always, more details, please!
