If you manage to be looking around Amazon‘s French site using something like Google Translate (or speak French) you might have noticed that they are listing something very cool coming to the 4K UHD Blu-ray format there, and very likely is coming here (Stateside) later this year. Now, keep in mind that this is only a RUMOR at this point, but it would seem that the 1991 Steven Spielberg directed film “Hook” starring the late Robin Williams is coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray (there in France) on November 7th via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. No further info, cover art, or anything is really available now at this point in time. The story will be updated when it develops any further. I’d speculate personally that we could see this sometime before or around the holiday season, here in the United States (and Canada).
EDITORIAL NOTE: As with all RUMORS reported here on the site, I always suggest you take these with a “grain of salt” so-to-speak, and remind you that you should wait until you see us or the studio directly issue an announcement regarding the release to take it as 100% factual. Lastly, thanks to our reader Jason for this news tip via Twitter.
