I thought, no not going to happen since Warner just announced a 4k of Se7en but then I remembered that the UHD was for the UK, and that Paramount and Universal let Criterion have Benjamin Button and The Game. So it might just be a question of whether Fincher pushed for the US 4k to be coming from Criterion. Andrew Stanton asked for Wall-E to be licensed out but that already had a 4k disc whereas Se7en doesn't. Personally I'd prefer Criterion to focus on something else but I also know that Se7en would be a guaranteed moneymaker. PS.: A further search told me that Criterion already had this film on a 1996 laserdisc!

More a wishlist than a well thought out guess:

Chaplin Revue (First National Shorts) or literally any of the few remaining Chaplins or a Lloyd (I wont be so selfish as to expect a Chaplin AND a Lloyd)
Spellbound (or Young and Innocent or Sabotage or a box of British Hitchcock)
Testament of Dr Mabuse upgrade (are we still doing blu upgrades from DVD or only 4K--I would take either)
Coffee and Cigarettes
Storefront Hitchcock (a very formative film for me which has only gotten a pan and scan DVD from MGM--not sure of the mass marketability. May do better in a Demme concert film box than on its own)
Madadayo
