'The Man in the Iron Mask' Blu-ray Dated

Posted Tue Aug 6, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The 1977 film from Mike Newell will be locked up on Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Hen's Tooth is working on 'The Man in the Iron Mask' for Blu-ray on October 8.

Alexandre Dumas' classic tale of good and evil twins is brought lavishly to the screen by director Mike Newell ('Four Weddings and a Funera'l). Richard Chamberlain shines in dual roles as both the imprisoned man in the hideous iron mask and his foppish twin, King Louis XIV of France. Under the sinister influence of Minister of Finance Fouquet, Louis rules with wasteful opulence. His brother Philippe, the rightful heir, lives in obscurity with no knowledge of his birthright. But the Captain of the Musketeers, D'Artagnan, has plans to restore the declining fortunes of the throne by secretly substituting Philippe for the King.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the release will be a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
