In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount is working on 'The Wolf of Wall Street' for Blu-ray on March 25.

Martin Scorsese directs this award-winning account of 1980s New York stockbroker Jordan Belfort's pursuit of wealth. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Belfort, who brags about earning just shy of one million dollars a week in one year and has long been involved in manipulating stock prices for his own financial gain. Heading a committed team at his Stratton Oakmont brokerage house in Long Island, it isn't long before he attracts the attention of the FBI who are suspicious of his increasingly lavish and hedonistic lifestyle. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actor (DiCaprio) and Best Director (Scorsese), and saw DiCaprio pick up the Golden Globe for Best Actor - Music Or Comedy.

The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: The Wolf Pack—Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill and other cast and crew discuss the incredible journey of making the film. Follow them as they reveal the real story behind Jordan Belfort's rise to power and how they depicted his world of lavish excess, perseverance and ultimately betrayal.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.99.
