Yes it is true. After various false rumors and supposed conspiracies it has finally been confirmed that the cut footage from Clive Barker's Director's Cut has been found.
The footage was discovered in a FOX warehouse along with a few unseen trailers for the film.
(If this was the same warehouse that stored the Ark Of the Covenant only Dr. Jones could tell.)
The film was partially damaged from unkind storage conditions but will be examined and restored as best as possible for a future Bluray release.
