Posted Mon Apr 29, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The docudrama based on Bill O'Reilly's bestselling book will hit Blu-ray in June.

In an early announcement to retailers, 20th Century Fox is preparing 'Killing Lincoln' for Blu-ray on June 11.

Based on The New York Times best-selling novel, 'Killing Lincoln' is the suspenseful, eye-opening story of the events surrounding the assassination of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. While some aspects of the plot to slay Lincoln and cripple the newly forming union are widely known, much more of the history unfolds in this insightful thriller. As actor John Wilkes Booth becomes increasingly obsessed with removing Lincoln from office, a secret cabal forms, and ultimately empowers Booth to carry out an event that will change America forever. Narrated by Oscar Winner Tom Hanks and produced by Tony Scott and Ridley Scott, this historical masterpiece stars Billy Campbell (TV's 'The Killing') in a spectacular turn as President Lincoln.

The Blu-ray/UltraViolet Combo Pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary with Executive Producer and Screenwriter Erik Jendresen; An Interview with Author Bill O'Reilly; Uncovering the Truth: The Making Of 'Killing Lincoln'; Lincoln In Virginia; Promotional Features; and Directing a New Lincoln Story.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.99.
