Anthony Minghella's 1999 thriller will be released on Blu-ray in September.
In an early announcement to retailers, Warner Brothers is preparing 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' for Blu-ray on September 10.
Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) is a bright and charismatic sociopath who makes his way in mid-50s New York City as a men's room attendant and sometimes pianist, though his real skill is in impersonating other people, forging handwriting, and running second-rate scams. After being mistaken for a Princeton student, Tom meets the shipping tycoon father of Dickie Greenleaf (Jude Law), who has traveled to the coast of Italy, where he's living a carefree life with his father's money and his beautiful girlfriend, Marge (Gwyneth Paltrow). Dickie's father offers to pay Ripley $1,000 plus expenses if he can persuade Dickie to return to America. As Ripley and Dickie become friends, Tom finds himself both attracted to Dickie and envious of his life of pleasure. In time, he decides that he would rather be Dickie Greenleaf than Tom Ripley.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
