Chasing Amy is getting supersized. Sort of.

According to Home Media Magazine, Chasing Amy is "being prepared as a two-disc special edition to be released next year by Criterion, which released the previous DVD version."

If you have already bought the Criterion version of Chasing Amy, you will be able to purchase "just the bonus disc of new featurettes, letting collector's supplement their current copy. A separate two-disc set will include the original disc and the bonus disc."

"Criterion doesn't believe in double dipping," Smith stated. "So you can buy just the bonus disc, and it fits in with the DVD you already have. And if you don't have it, you can buy the two-disc set."

Synopsis:

In Chasing Amy, life-long best friends Holden McNeil (Ben Affleck) and Banky Edwards (Jason Lee) are enjoying success as the creators of the cult hit comic book 'Bluntman and Chronic.' When they meet fellow comic book artist Alyssa Jones (Joey Lauren Adams), Holden's desire for the beautiful charmer is immediate. Alyssa, however, has set her romantic sights elsewhere and yet decides, nevertheless, to pursue a friendship with Holden. This presents Holden with a dilemma: Feeling the way he does, can he merely be friends with this woman? Banky, who knows Holden best, doesn't think so.

As the friendship deepens, so do Holden's affections for Alyssa. And cautiously, yet effortlessly, so do Alyssa's for him. With their relationship struggling to define itself, Banky grows more and more frustrated at the notion of losing his best friend to emotional adulthood.

There is no word yet on when the new version of Chasing Amy will be released or how much it will cost.
