Director Ridley Scott has announced that he had finally finished his ”Final Cut” edit of his futuristic noir classic Blade Runner (1982) and that it will be released in a variety of collector’s editions on DVD, Hi-Def and Blu-Ray discs.

This new edit of the film will be available in a two disc Special Edition, a four disc Collector’s Edition and a five disc Ultimate Collector’s Edition. Additionally, the five disc edition will also be available in Hi-Def and Blu-Ray.

All versions of the DVD will also contain a new three-and-a-half hour documentary on the film entitled Dangerous Days. The four-disc edition will contain three additional edits of the film – the 1982 theatrical version, the 1982 international version and the 1992 director’s cut – as well as an additional disc of bonus featurettes and deleted scenes. The five disc set will also include a fifth workprint version of the film and come packaged in a replica of Harrison Ford’s Deckard’s briefcase.

All versions of the discs will hit stores on December 18, 2007.
