'The Producers' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Fri Apr 5, 2013 at 08:20 AM PDT by

Mel Brooks' classic debut comedy is bringing "Springtime for Hitler" to Blu-ray this summer.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is bringing 'The Producers' to Blu-ray on July 2.

A "startling, stunning, outrageous [and] breathtaking debut" (Los Angeles Times) from acclaimed writer/director Mel Brooks ('Young Frankenstein,' 'Spaceballs'), this Oscar-winning comedy combines "pure pell-Mel lunacy [and] wild, ad-lib energy [into an] uproariously funny" (Time) film! Low-rent Broadway producer Max Bialystock (Zero Mostel) and his high-strung accountant, Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder), discover that, with the help of a few gullible investors, they can make more money on a flop than on a hit! Armed with the worst show ever written ("Springtime for Hitler") and an equally horrific cast, this double-dealing duo is banking on disaster. But when their sure-to-offend musical becomes a surprise smash hit, they find themselves in the middle of a Broadway blitzkrieg!

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.99.
