Nope. The stuffe that comes out of a K-chrome processor is really nasty.  Plus, there are no processing machines left.   E-6 and be happy.

There was a big discussion of this "possibility" on a website for photographers (most if not all of them not raifans).  The generall consensus was that Ektachrome might come back, but Kodachrome was very doubtful.  There just aren't enough people shooting film now to generate the sales necessary to support the startup costs.  And someone mentioned that the K-14 line at Dwayne's in Kansas has been scrapped. so either Kodak or a third-party processor  would have to start from scratch.

I loved Kodachrome, but it will never return.  As mentioned, the processing is verycomplex and includes environmentally sensitive chemicals.  The small market would not support running a processing line, which is why it went away in the first place. RIP Kodachrome.

Those of us who railfanned the west in the mid 80s loved Kodachromes.
