I just came over this news report on http://www.rollingstone.com/news/newsar ... 665&cf=338, and I'm wondering: is this a joke? Or, since the report isn't dated, has plans like this ever existed? Or what? What is that?

My guess is that the article is from Aug or Sept 1997.

I stand corrected!! Latter on in that article it says...<br><br>"Rykodisc will also release the film's soundtrack; to list for $34.98, it includes the London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra's original contributions to the project, as well as bonus tracks, dialogue from the movie, and interactive CD-Rom content."<br><br>So, yes... it is confusing. The use of the word also implies that the film and soundtrack are both being put out. Fuck Rolling Stone in the ass for making such stupid mistakes.<br>
