The 2003 comedy will be getting the high-definition treatment next year.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive has revealed 'A Mighty Wind' will arrive on Blu-ray sometime in the new year.
In A Mighty Wind, director Christopher Guest reunites the team from Best in Show and Waiting for Guffman to tell the story (co-written by Eugene Levy) of '60s-era folk musicians, who, inspired by the death of their former manager, get back on the stage for one concert in New York City's Town Hall.
Levy and Catherine O'Hara are Mitch and Mickey, once the sweethearts of folk music until their bitter separation; Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer are classic folk trio The Folksmen, and Parker Posey, John Michael Higgins and Jane Lynch anchor a color-coordinated, harmonizing "neuftet" - the New Main Street Singers.
Joining the musicians are Bob Balaban, Ed Begley, Jr., Jennifer Coolidge, Paul Dooley, Michael Hitchcock, Don Lake, Larry Miller, Jim Piddock, Deborah Theaker and Fred Willard, who all work to revive folk music in this uniquely touching comedy.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Feature-length audio commentary by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy; Nearly a half-hour of additional scenes (with commentary) including "The Good Book Song", "The Catheter Song", Folksmen Interview, The Bohners Meet Their Meet Their Fans, and More; Live TV Broadcast of the Concert: The Climactic Benefit Show in its entirety; and Vintage TV appearances of the bands.
