'The Package' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Tue Nov 27, 2012 at 10:00 AM PST by

Steve Austin takes on Dolph Lundgren on Blu-ray this February.

In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'The Package' for Blu-ray on February 19.

Directed by Jesse V. Johnson and written by Derek Kolstad, 'The Package' features Austin as Tommy Wick, a nightclub bouncer and enforcer for Seattle crime boss Big Doug (Eric Keenleyside, 'Dreamcatcher,' 'Firewall'). When Big Doug instructs Tommy to hand-deliver a secret package to the mysterious international crime lord “The German,” (Lundgren), he does so with the hopes that Big Doug will forgive the debt Tommy’s brother Eddie (Lochlyn Munroe, 'White Chicks,' 'Freddy vs. Jason') owes.

Word of the clandestine delivery spreads and soon “the package” – and those who carry it – becomes the target of rival gang leader Anthony (Michael Daingerfield, 'The Messengers'). Anthony will stop at nothing to ensure its capture. Facing incredible odds, Tommy races against the ticking clock – and a small army of hit men, mercenaries, assassins and sadists -- to complete delivery. But does The German have other ideas about what to do with the package?

The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack, and there doesn't appear to be any supplements.

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