"Zodiac" Director's Cut in '08 a Potential Oscar ploy?

As you've seen, David Fincher's "Zodiac" is releasing on DVD later this month, with a director's cut set for release next year. If released in January, could such a tactic be a stab at Oscar hopes in addition to the obvious money-hungry studio typicality? It might have been smarter, if such a thought was in Paramount's mind, to push that director's cut into the fall rather than next year, giving more time for consideration. Regardless, this seems to beb a title that was fumbled by management over and over again, so why not one more for the road?


This certainly has crossed my mind. I'm just not sure if the film could find traction in any individual categories, even if people are remembering it.
