Any news on the rumored "The Killer" and "Hard Boiled" release from R2?

There have been various postings regarding a release of both "The Killer" and "Hard Boiled" out of R2 France. Supposedly, it sports an anamorphic transfer, as well as other goodies.

I was just wondering if anyone has confirmation and specs.

I've been wondering what happened with these releases as well. There was a thread with more details listed this past summer but a search yielded no results. Someone had stated that The Killer would not include English subtitles. Has this title even come out yet and is there any chance that earlier info is wrong?

Has anyone a clue as to whether The Killer and Hard Boiled will be reissued in the 2 DVD format in the USA? I've wanted to buy them for months, but I know as soon as I do, the better versions will come out... That always seems to happen!

French versions of Killer and rest

As you might know from the posts above the movies aren't out yet.

In true French spirit all DVDs will have french audio dub and original audio with forced french subtitles. If you don't have a correct script for either of the two versions of The Killer and don't know Cantonese or don't know french I guess its no use buying this.

The specs for the Killer can be found at:

and for Zu:

The site is www.homecinedvd.com and is in french.
