If they are going to do it, I'd rather wait until they can afford to do it properly.
The longer you wait, the more the film degrades, the harder it is to track down errant film canisters, and so on.
If they were to do it right, I'd say they'd need to start the archival and transfer process of the original film footage ASAP.
It would take a while to simply assemble the footage, organize it, and index it. The next step of reproducing the TV edits from all the film would take a ton of time by itself.
