'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Jul 31, 2013 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Mira Nair's adaptation of the bestselling novel is heading toward Blu-ray in August.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI Home Video is preparing 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' for Blu-ray on August 27.

Based on the international bestseller, 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' is both a gripping thriller and a fascinating look at the post-9/11 world. Kate Hudson ('Glee,' 'Something Borrowed'), Kiefer Sutherland ('24,' 'Touch') and Liev Schreiber ('X-Men Origins,' 'Repo Men') lead a powerful cast in the story of a young man caught in the middle of an unfolding international crisis. When an American academic in Pakistan is kidnapped by anti-American radicals, the CIA thinks popular young Pakistani professor Changez (Riz Ahmed, 'Trishna') is involved. But as Changez tells his remarkable story about his life in the US - including his rising career on Wall Street and passionate relationship with a beautiful New York artist - to an American foreign correspondent, the truth becomes harder to pin down. Acclaimed director Mira Nair's ('Monsoon Wedding') adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's novel is a tense tale of hidden agendas and best intentions gone wrong.

Specs have not been revealed yet, but supplements will include: Making of Featurette; and Original Theatrical Trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
