'Vinyl' Planned for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Oct 8, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

Sara Sugarman's punk rock comedy based on real events will arrive on Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Shout Factory is preparing to release 'Vinyl' on Blu-ray on January 14.

Aging punk rockers, Johnny Jones (Phil Daniels) and the Weapons of Happiness, reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend, resulting in an impromptu recording session. Upon listening to the recordings the next day, they find they may have come up with a hit single, and after deciding to give it one more shot, they are at once confronted with the difficulty of getting their old label interested due to their age. They then hatch a plan to draft in a bunch of young photogenic teenagers to mime to their single as a way of finding success and tricking the record label, but the lie doesn't hold for too long.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.97.
