'Stephen King's Thinner' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri May 25, 2012 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Blu-ray will lose more than a few pounds this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Olive Films has revealed 'Stephen King's Thinner' will be available on Blu-ray on August 21.

Based on the best-seller, 'Stephen King's Thinner' stars Robert John Burke ('Robocop 3') and Joe Mantegna ('House of Games') in a story of supernatural terror and countdown to the ultimate payback. A 109-year old gypsy (Michael Constantine, 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'), hell-bent on revenge, exacts a curse so shocking it compels its victim to gorge himself in an effort to avoid shrinking away to nothingness. With time running out and a torture so bizarre and powerful, even death seems a more likely option. Directed by Tom Holland ('The Langoliers').

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray will be $29.95.
