Any interest in a new HD-DVD Release?

Hello to all! Question for the forum:

Is there interest in a (very) short run of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (2017) on HD-DVD?

The movie has Oscar winners Mickey Rooney (in his final role), Margaret O'Brien (Meet Me in St. Louis), Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior), William McNamara (Copycat, Stealing Home) and others. It's a faithful retelling of the classic novella.

I did a short run of indie films on HD-DVD a few years back to mixed results (I think primarily because some had to be up-sampled to fit the format and weren't HD quality to begin with). And just to clarify, not bootlegs, all licensed or produced by my company.

However, Jekyll and Hyde was shot in 4K, and it is coming soon to VOD, BluRay and DVD. I still have around 75 blank HD-DVD discs and the equipment to manufacture and package them.

It's a long and slow process so I'm trying to gauge interest before I do anything. It'd be great to get some input. Thanks!

I would if it is a real HD DVD and not a computer-recorded disk but since it is a computer-recorded I would probably not be interested.

I MIGHT be interested, as long as there are English subtitles. Depends on the price, too.

English subtitles will be included.

Limited Edition run will be 2-Disc set (HD-DVD 3X and DVD) would be $35 with shipping and tax (in the US). 100 unit run, hand numbered, shrink wrapped, security strip. HD-DVD is the movie, no menus. DVD has menus, movie, bonus documentary.

There will also be a 45 unit Collector's Edition run - 3 disc set (HD-DVD 3x, HD-DVD (R), DVD; signed and numbered units; 3 framed photos (including an unreleased picture of Mickey Rooney on set with Margaret O'Brien); Digital downloads of Annotated Screenplay and Official study guide (still accessible even if package remains sealed).

Interesting how if you click on that link in Firefox the web page is mostly blank on the left side. It displays normally in Chrome though. I wonder what sort of odd technology was used to create the page.
