‘Outsiders’ in for re-release, DVD

Coppola classic headed for theaters this fall

Warner Home Video’s DVD edition of “The Outsiders” will get a limited theatrical run prior to its Sept. 20 release.

Director Francis Ford Coppola has added 22 minutes of footage and a rock soundtrack to the 1983 drama and has rounded up most of the Brat Pack-plus cast for bonus features.

The two-disc edition of “The Outsiders: The Complete Novel,” featuring a new beginning and ending, will be preceded by a 10-city theatrical screening of the film starting Sept. 9, including showings in New York and L.A. Pic now runs 114 minutes.

Coppola says that the movie, based on the S.E. Hinton book, was rushed to distribution and did not include important parts of the story familiar to many junior high school students whose reading of the book was often their first experience with literature.

The filmmaker has “reconceived the score” based on what the characters would be listening to and added songs to the soundtrack from Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins, among others. He said he had hoped to have an all-Elvis Presley score but it wasn’t possible.

Among cast members participating in the audio commentary with Coppola, who also recorded an introduction to the movie, are C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze.

The DVD also features three new documentaries, three featurettes and other additional and deleted scenes.
