Brief DVD Update

Palisades Tartan announced a DVD and Blu-ray release on 8 December of Olivier Marchal's 36 [36 Quai des Orfèvres], a crime thriller starring Daniel Auteuil, Gérard Depardieu, André Dussollier, Valeria Golino, Roschdy Zem, Francis Renaud, Daniel Duval and Anne Consigny. 36 is currently slated for an American remake directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, the 2 Antonio Banderas Zorro films) from Paramount. Palisades Tartan also announced Blu-ray releases for Kim Jin-Won's The Butcher and Paul Spurrier's P for 15 December. I didn't find any other notable Blu-ray releases for this update. It does seem to be a shame that Focus will release Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock on Blu-ray and not Jim Jarmusch's The Limits of Control or Park Chan-wook's Thirst.
