Willard on DVD?

Any ideas if/when the movie Willard starring Crispin Glover will be available on DVD?

would love to have the old one also, although I'm sure I'll check the new one out. I liked Bruce Davidson as the rodent pied-piper. I dont have any info on the new version on dvd, date wise anyway. btw, The Haunting will be here soon!!

Great, so thanks for the 2 posts guys...they clearly answer my question.

I too would like to see Willard and Ben fromt he 70s on DVD as well, but I figured there is more chance for the 2003 Willard to come out on DVD before those (or maybe they'll all come out at the same time? Re: 13 Ghosts...and I know there are others, but I'm drawing a blank here...maybe Ocean's 11?)

I'm sure Willard will make it to dvd. It was just released in March, so it might be a few months before the dvd is announced.

Sorry for the long-winded hijacking from a certain poster, J...

I couldn't find any info from the New Line site or any "upcoming DVD" sites, but since Willard came out March 14, I'm guessing a September release. Found nothing about features either, though I imagine New Line will have a tidy package for it... let's hope it has Glover's cover of "Ben'!

Willard has been rumored for an august dvd release.
I was hoping they were to include the original version with the remake.

By the way, I like the remake a little bit more.
Even though the first one holds a special place in my heart.
Excuse me, I have to go sing to a rat now.
Bye.

The original would be very nice to have, but I prefer the remake too. It's a shame that it tanked, because it was surprisingly funny and strangely heartfelt.
