Grindhouse Releasing has announced that they will be putting out a 4K restoration of Umberto Lenzi’s 1976 action thriller The Tough Ones. Their 3-disc special edition Blu-ray will be coming out July 9 and is already available for pre-order through Diabolik DVD.
Packed to the brim with special features, you’ll be getting the unrated, unedited original version in stunning 4K quality along with brand new interviews, liner notes, the original soundtrack on CD, and audio commentary by Eurocrime director Mike Malloy, plus a slew of other goodies.
“The Tough Ones was a very favorite of my late partner Sage Stallone,” says Grindhouse Releasing co-founder Bob Murawski. “Sage absolutely loved this movie and wanted everyone to see it. Our friend Umberto Lenzi was extremely proud of this film and was overjoyed when he heard that we had acquired it. As was Tomas Milian. I’m sorry they are not here to see this deluxe edition release.”
