‘The Producers’ to return to cinemas for one day only on 5 August 2018

Studiocanal has announced that Mel Brooks‘ outrageous comedy classic, The Producers, will return to cinemas nationwide in a new 50th Anniversary 4K Restoration for one day only on 5 August 2018, followed by new Blu-ray, DVD and EST editions, available from 20 August 2018.

The Oscar-winning feature will also include a very special Mel Brooks introduction from Turner Classic Movies.

Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) is a washed up Broadway producer forced to romance old ladies to finance his plays. When timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) is brought in to do his books, he inadvertently reveals to Bialystock that under the right circumstances, a producer could make more money with a flop than a hit. Bialystock cajoles Bloom into helping him achieve this end and together they come up with what they consider to be a sure-fire disaster waiting to happen – a musical version of Adolf and Eva’s love story entitled ‘Springtime For Hitler’. But is it possible that they might actually have the most unlikely hit of all time on their hands?

Studiocanal completed a brand new 4k restoration from a new scan of the original negative.
