Those who have yet to see “Brokeback Mountain,” or those looking to see it again, will soon have a choice — the DVD will hit stores April 4, even with the film still in theatrical release.

That’s a rare overlap, said a spokeswoman for DVD distributor Universal Studios Home Entertainment. But, she explained, with the film still riding high on its eight Academy Award nominations and three Oscar wins, its theater run has been extended, bumping into the scheduled DVD release.

The DVD’s special features include a profile of Oscar-winning director Ang Lee and interviews with Oscar-winning screenwriters Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana. Oscar-nominated stars Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal also discuss the rodeo and wrangling training they had to prepare for their roles as the cowboys in love.

The “Brokeback Mountain” DVD is expected to sell for $29.98.

“Brokeback,” which opened in theaters Nov. 30, has grossed $81 million to date.
