It already is, thanks to the German disc released a few months ago

Is the 1910 Frankenstein on Arrow’s 4K of the Branagh film in full HD?

they're ambiguous about the inclusion of HDR, but the inclusion of new extras, a 100 page book, and gorgeous hardbox cover make this well worth the while even if it is just an SDR UHD. I couldn't find myself buying SDR UHDs from Criterion that are the same editions as previous releases (NOTLD, certainly), I have from Kino for movies that got less than stellar BDs (the Leones, The Great Escape), but throwing in some copious extras and a gorgeous package make it easy to get this one. the BD already looks great, can't wait to see it as it is now.
