It was reported over at Twitch Film that fans of Guillermo del Toro’s earlier films will have something to relish in the very near future.
His debut film Cronos is being released later this year by Criterion, and Mimic will finally get the proper treatment that has been so lacking in the twelve years since it was released in theatres.
Del Toro has been working for some time now on creating his own Director’s Cut version of Mimic, and it looks like Dimension Films will be releasing that onto DVD shelves July 18th, 2009.
It’s no secret that the theatrical cut has been a long-running sore spot for the visionary director so it will be interesting to finally see what this cut looks like as well as have an opportunity to hear del Toro discuss all the Mimic-related woes in his audio commentary on this disc.
No official street date has been set for Cronos yet, but as soon as it is, we’ll pass the word along!
