Posted Wed Mar 27, 2013 at 06:00 AM PDT by

The crime thriller starring Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez is shooting its way to Blu-ray in May.

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing 'Parker' for Blu-ray on May 21.

Parker (Jason Statham) is a professional thief who lives by a personal code of ethics: Don't steal from people who can't afford it and don't hurt people who don't deserve it. But on his latest heist, his crew double crosses him, steals his stash, and leaves him for dead. Determined to make sure they regret it, Parker tracks them to Palm Beach, playground of the rich and famous, where the crew is planning their biggest heist ever. Donning the disguise of a rich Texan, Parker takes on an unlikely partner, Leslie (Jennifer Lopez), a savvy insider, who's short on cash, but big on looks, smarts and ambition. Together, they devise a plan to hijack the score, take everyone down and get away clean.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Commentary with Director Taylor Hackford; Bringing the Hunter to Life: The Making of Parker; The Origin of Parker; Broken Necks and Bloody Knuckles; and Who Is Parker?

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
