Sergio Corbucci's 1970 spaghetti western will saddle up Blu-ray next year.
In an early announcement to retailers, Blue Underground is working on 'Companeros' for Blu-ray sometime in 2014.
Yodlaf Peterson (Franco Nero of 'Keoma') is a suave Swedish arms dealer with a love for fast money. Vasco (Tomas Milian of 'Traffic') is a trigger-happy Mexican bandit with a hate for suave Swedish arms dealers. But when the two team up to kidnap a professor who holds the key to a fortune in gold, they find themselves hunted by the American army, stalked by a marijuana-crazed sadist (Academy Award winner Jack Palance) and trapped in the middle of a revolution about to explode. Can these two enemies blast their way across Mexico together without killing each other first?
Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price have yet to be revealed.
