El Topo and The Holy Mountain on HD DVD?!?

Hi,

According to "wikipedia" El Topo and Holy Mountain are being prepared for release on HD DVD. Anyone have info on this, or what company is doing it?

".....Reportedly, Klein originally acquired them on the advice of John Lennon, who was said to be a big fan of the movies. Jodorowsky has called the situation 'cultural murder', and there is no record of any comment by Klein's office. Jodorowsky claims he needs the income from these movies (which are available on the bootleg market) to finance future projects. Jodorowsky and Klein have since made peace, and the films are being prepared for HD-DVD release."

I feel like a broken record on this, but the segments of both films features in the docu film 'Midnight Movies' looked spectacular in HiDef.

If these movies were only released on HD-DVD, then I would have to buy an HD-DVD player.
