The 1967 film starring Julie Christie, Peter Finch, and Terence Stamp is in the works for Blu-ray in 2015.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Archive is prepping 'Far from the Madding Crowd' for Blu-ray later this year.
As Bathsheba, Julie Christie reteams with director John Schlesinger and screenwriter Frederic Raphael of her starmaking Darling in a sumptuous adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic. Roguish soldier Terence Stamp, rich landowner Peter Finch (the National Board of Review's choice as Best Actor, as was the film itself as Best Picture) and rough-hewn shepherd Alan Bates memorably play her suitors. And a visual rhapsody of crowd scenes and historic settings provide a backdrop for this epic tale lensed on location in "Hardy country".
No other details have been revealed at this time.
