Independent British distributors Second Sight Films have revealed that they will be working on a Blu-ray release of director Michael Cimino's Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974), starring Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Geoffrey Lewis, Catherine Bach, and Gary Busey.
The distributors are yet to make a formal announcement detailing this upcoming release.
John "Thunderbolt" Doherty (Eastwood ) is a former thief whose razor-sharp wits and steely nerves made him a master of his profession, but he's about to reenter the criminal world with a new partner: Lightfoot (Bridges), a brash young drifter whose energy and exuberance give the veteran a new outlook on life. Their target: the seemingly impenetrable Montanta Armored Despository. After forming an uneasy alliance with Thunderbolt's former partners in crime (Kennedy and Lewis), they launch an amazing scheme that will test the limits of their endurance...and the power of their friendship.
Fueled by explosive action, fascinating characters and a powerfully moving climax, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot is an adventure of the highest caliber.
