A high definition release of James Cameron’s 1989 underwater epic The Abyss could be getting closer…

Fans have been hollering for a high-def transfer of the movie that revolutionised CGI for years, and now it appears that work is under way on a 4K restoration of this HD holy grail, according to an Instagram post from colourist Skip Kimball:

Hopefully the release will include both the theatrical and extended cuts of the film for both 4K UHD and Blu-ray, and we see it sooner rather than later. Fingers crossed!
