S.E. Hinton comes out of hiding for re-vamped version of The Outsiders!

Based on the classic S.E. Hinton novel for teens the Outsiders, the film is getting a new lease on life! The author is coming out of the shadows to promote the recut version of Francis Ford Coppola's 1983 film of "The Outsiders" on DVD, on Sept. 20. The film will have a limited theatrical run nationally and is opening in New York on Sept. 9. Starring a then unknown cast of young actors on the brink of stardom this amazing film stars an adorable Ralph Macchio of Karate Kid fame and the smokin' hot Matt Dillon who went on to star in two other S.E. Hinton novels adapted for the screen - Tex and Rumble Fish. Also check out Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe and Patrick Swayze.
