Please release Coppola's restored, remastered & expanded Cotton Club movie.

This petition had 91 supporters

Francis Coppola‘s The Cotton Club Encore, is an expanded and improved 139-minute version of the original 1984 film.

It features more music and dancing and is less focused upon the romantic relationship between the two lead characters, played by Richard Gere and Diane Lane.

MGM holds the rights to The Cotton Club. It has been reported that MGM is uninterested in distributing or streaming Coppola’s expanded version, even though Coppola has paid for the whole thing.

Theoretically The Cotton Club Encore could be given a brief theatrical re-release or issued on Bluray or via Amazon/iTunes streaming or the home video rights could be sub-licensed  to Criterion or some other dedicated, film-loving outfit.

If you love film and The Cotton Club and want to see the this new version, please sign the petition.
