Bringing back Kodak Kodachrome film is “unlikely”


Dennis Olbrich, president of Kodak Alaris, said that bringing back the Kodak Kodachrome film is "unlikely":

While the ever-popular Kodachrome is not off the table, it's unlikely to make a comeback in the near future. "I would love for it to be Kodachrome, obviously," says Olbrich. "It's such an iconic film – that rich saturation, the graininess that people love. But it’s a very difficult proposition to get that whole infrastructure back in place."

Kodak Alaris is the company that took over Kodak's film photography businesses:

Kodak Alaris acquired the stills film division as part of a settlement with Kodak's UK pension scheme, during its restructuring under the US's Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection process. US-based Eastman Kodak manufactures the film on the UK company's behalf and still sells cine film and filmstocks for the movie industry.

Note: the Kodak EKTACHROME film is still coming back.
