Ken Russell's "The Boyfriend" - any Region 1 DVD release news?

One of my favourite Ken Russell films after "The Devils" and "Altered States". I could have kicked myself for missing the Turner Classic Movies airing of this yesterday, since I had planned on taping it. I own this on laserdisc, but am patiently waiting a DVD release, has anyone heard if and when MGM plans on releasing this? Or a region 2 special edition, akin to their recent "Tommy" 2Disc special edition?

a full length commentary by Ken Russell with Mark Kermode, exclusive interviews with Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ann-Margret, and Ken Russell, a featurette on the sound restoration plus a featurette on the recollections of "Tommy" by the original technical personnel including Terry Rawlings the music editor

I did hear that "The Devils" (my favorite Russell film) was being prepped for R1 release. Might bode well for "The Boyfriend".

Water-cooler conversation, nothing more. (But since I work with film and DVD production people from most of the major studios, I can take water-cooler talk fairly seriously) I wouldn't believe me, if I were you. Sir.
