Any idea why there hasn't been any news on this and why this isn't up for preorder anywhere?

Same here.

Not sure what other deleted scenes there are.
Were those cuts in the version seen in theaters in the U.S., or just to the U.S. DVD? Where's a decent place to get the uncut version (I'm in the U.S.)?

They were in the theatrical and the DVD. Only place I know of to get the full uncut version is the R4 Aussie Blu-ray.

I'll pick it up because I never got around to buying the first release (I guess my procrastinating finally pays off).

I may upgrade if the case will still fit in my Ultimate James Bond box set.

I don't know why they didn't include the original TV version of Casino Royale from the 50's. They had it on the spoof 1967 Casino Royale DVD set but are taking it off for the new edition, so it would have made sense to add it here for historical context of the story.

I may just pick this up on Blu Ray, though. It looks like a nice package.

From dvdcompare, a summary description of the cuts: "When the completed version of the film was submitted for classification, reductions to the torture sequence had been made, including the removal of lingering shots of the rope, close shots of Bond's facial reaction and the substitution of a more distant shot of the beating compared to the original version."

It seems to have disappeared from Sony's schedule

They probably pushed it back to coincide with the release of Quantum of Solace.

Damn I guess I will buy this even though I have the original already... The problem is that I always want to have the "best" version of the DVDs I bought

I'd like this release, but I don't care if they pushed it back. It's more than likely the same cut of the film, with the same DD 5.1 track. I can live for a few more months without bonus features.

Bumping this thread isn't going to bring you information any faster if Sony hasn't released it. And you can rest assured that when Sony does announce a release date it will be posted here almost instantly.

I'm willing to bet we'll see a mid- to late-October release for this.

There's still no word if it will include a re-dip on BD?

The one feature I really wanted on the Casino Royale DVD/Blu Ray still isn't set to be on this set - The original TV version of Casino Royale from 1954 with Barry Nelson playing James Bond!

They put it on the DVD for the 1967 spoof version of CR, so clearly MGM has access to it. It makes more sense with THIS version of CR than that one since the '54 version was played completely straight (and isn't that far off in tone from the 2006 version).

Sony owns MGM, so if MGM has the rights to it, Sony could include it.
