Does anyone know if this movie would be HD DVD or a Blu-ray title?

I would think both. I believe it's DreamWorks and they are owned by Paramount.

The rumor is Dreamworks plans to release all of their non animation movies on the HD DVD format exclusively.

What rumor is this? When Dreamworks decides to release on HD it will be in both formats as they will follow their parent company, just like New Line and WB.

The music would sound heavenly in Dolby TruHD or PCM . This is a top ten all time film for me.

The information in that link is too old. I think it needs to be upgraded. Dreamworks will probably end up releasing movies in both formats.

I will try and hide my annoyance with this reply by masking it with sarcasm.

Let's make sure you covered the basics. First did you click on the above link? If you did that, congrats, you're almost there. Second scroll down a little bit. The link starts with HD DVD studio support and planned release titles. Find the studio named "Dreamworks", the studios are listed aphabetically so if you miss it the first time, try and remember your ABC's. Now, here is where some people get lost. Scroll down further to the Blu Ray section of supporting studios and find "Dreamworks", please read the comment following said studio. It reads something along the lines of "Their support for Blu Ray is unknown".

It would be safe to assume that because a dual format studio such as Paramount owns Dreamworks that logically Dreamworks would follow suit. I can't argue with that. I would be surprised if Rogue Pictures was neutral considering they are owned by Universal. All I can say is that obviously Digital Bits has received information to the contrary otherwise they would report the same neutral stance that Paramount has taken. So where did they get their information from? I don't know. So unless you have anything to offer that contridicts what they are reporting....I'll take what they say at face value, a rumor and nothing more - Support is planned for HD and not known for Blu Ray. This implies the phrase 'exclusive' until new information is released.

Saying "Their support for Blu-Ray is unknown" is quite different from saying they would be HD-DVD exclusive.

Was that before or after they were bought by Paramount?

The point is moot now, since Dreamgirls is the first Dreamworks title and it's coming out on both formats.
