StudioCanal have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Limited Edition Double Play SteelBook edition of Julian Gilbey's Rise of the Footsoldier (2007), starring Ricci Harnett, Terry Stone and Craig Fairbrass. The release will be available for purchase on December 24th.
The release will feature an all-new-cut of the film as well as new commentary and an interview with visionary director Julian Gilbey (A Lonely Place To Die).
This British crime epic charts the inexorable rise of Carlton Leach from one of the most feared generals of the football terraces to leader of a notorious gang of criminals who rampaged their way through London and Essex during the late eighties and early nineties. The story spans three decades: from football hooliganism through to Leach's burgeoning career as a bouncer, his involvement in the criminal aspects of the early 'rave' scene and subsequently his rise to power as one of the most feared and respected villains in the country. As his notoriety increased, Leach became entwined in a violent series of events, which culminated in the Rettendon Range Rover murders of 1995, one of the most infamous slayings in British Gangland history. This is his story.

I don't mind double dipping since the only commentary on this one is a brand newly recorded one and doesn't contain the old commentary so I can hang onto the old one. I really liked this movie and I'm excited to see this new 139 minute version!
