War, Inc.

Iindie First Look Studios has announced it is going all-Blu with the early-July release of the John Cusack comedy 'War, Inc.'

Starring Cusack as a hitman who goes undercover as the organizer of a fake wedding between a pop star and a local politician, the Joshua Seftel-directed 'War, Inc' (formerly known as 'Brand Hauser') also stars Joan Cusack, Marisa Tomei and Hilary Duff.

Following a theatrical release beginning May 23, 'War, Inc.' will hit Blu-ray July 1, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

The title marks the first Blu-ray-exclusive release from First Look. The company had previously supported both next-gen formats with a number of titles, including 'The King of California' and 'The Amateurs.' A rep for First Look has told us that beginning with 'War, Inc.,' they have no plans to issue any further releases on HD DVD.

There are no tech specs or supplemental details available for the next-gen version of 'War, Inc.,' but we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail for the Blu-ray has been set at $29.99.

You'll find preliminary specs for 'War, Inc.' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under July 1.
